Live Race Updates on the Olympic 10K Qualification Race in Beijing
Chloe Sutton and Kirsten Groome are getting ready for the race of their lives: a pressure-packed 10K swim at the Shunyi Olympic Rowing-Canoeing Park. The two American representatives must get in the top 10 in order to qualify for the women's Olympic 10K Marathon Swim final on August 20...but only one of them will qualify as the U.S. representative.
72 athletes and 78 coaches and officials from 33 countries will compete in this qualification race.
For updates on this race in Beijing, I will be using Twitter to describe the race as it unfolds. I will provide more information in a few days on how you can sign up to receive these live race updates from Beijing.
