Ana Marcela Cunha of Brazil won the women’s 10km marathon swimming event at Odaiba Marine Park in Tokyo.
After the gruelling 10km open-water swim, the 29-year-old Cunha touched the finish line in 1:59:30.8, just 0.9 seconds ahead of Netherlands’ Sharon van Rouwendaal. This gave the Dutchwoman her second Olympic medal – she won the gold in Rio in 2016.
Kareena Lee of Australia finished a further 0.8 seconds behind to win the bronze medal, become Australia’s first marathon swimming medallist.
At the end of lap six, at 8.6km, Leonie Beck of Germany was leading the race, 2.6 seconds ahead of Cunha, with 5.5 seconds separating the top five.
By the 9.5km mark, Cunha was in front, and the leading pack of swimmers still had the energy to race to the line.
In the last 500m, Cunha edged ahead, opening a gap of 0.7-seconds between her and van Rouwendaal, Beck had dropped back in to third place. Lee had moved up from fifth to fourth, 3.5 seconds behind.
Cunha got to the pad first in 1:59:30.8, followed in quick succession by van Rouwendaal and Lee. Beck could not keep up with the pace and dropped to fifth place behind Anna Olasz of Hungary.
