Eric Hedlin Places 14th in World Championships 5km Swim!

Opening up the World Championships in Hungary, the men raced the 5km open water race today.  PCS and Vikes swimmer Eric Hedlin was near the front from start to finish, holding ~6th place for a while, before dropping to ~25th near the middle of the race before fighting his way up to 11th and ultimately finishing 14th overall in the field of 60 top international athletes.  Eric's World Championships is now complete, but make sure to follow fellow PCS swimmers Stephanie Horner in the Women's 10km race tomorrow, and Richard Weinberger will race Sunday in the 10km.
