The 5km open water race world champion confessed that he did not doubt his victory, even despite the fact that only the photo finish could identify a sequence of finishers.

“Today’s race was real. We had to make every effort to achieve the result. Going into the last 400 metres, I said to myself that I can do this. I kept saying that to myself. I knew that if my mind was right, I could move. I pushed hard. I won a bronze in 2009. If I came first, I am very happy I got evolved this time,” Chad Ho admitted after the race.

As it was reported earlier, only the photo finish helped the judges to identify the winner. Both Chad Ho of South Africa and Rob Muffels of Germany hit the touchpad at 55:17.6.
