South African open water icon Chad Ho missed out on an eighth Midmar Mile title on Sunday.

It was Russian Kirill Abrosimov who won the 2018 men’s event in a time of 18:56.

The race for second and third between Ho and Ashley Hogg was so close that a judge had to review the footage after they had crossed at the exact same time of 19:08.

Upon reviewing the footage, Hogg was announced as the runner-up with Ho in third place.

Ashley Twichell successfully defended her title in an amazing time of 19:12.

Second place went to Marit Anderson in 20:14, with former champion Michelle Weber in third place just a second later.
