May 31, 2015



Alex Meyer, now swimming for Tennessee Aquatics, led a Tennessee 1-2 in the men’s 5K open water event at the 2015 Open Water Nationals held at Miromar Lakes in Florida.

That’s Meyer’s second win in the event, having won a year ago.

Meyer snagged the victory today in 57:43.94 after taking third in the 10K event behind Northwestern’s Jordan Wilimovsky and Club Wolverine’s Sean Ryan. Meyer missed out on second place during the 10K in a photo finish with Ryan by six one-thousandths of a second.
