Coach Ron Jacks Talks About USA Open Water Nationals

Ron Jacks took some time out of his schedule in California to send us his thoughts regarding the weekend's Open Water races at USA Open Water Nationals.

Regarding the Men's 10km Race:  Richard Weinberger was very solid in the 10k, positioning well throughout the race. He had a very good result! He will definitely be better when he is completely healthy going into Worlds. Eric Hedlin was feeling the cool water combined with the strong wind chill and was not able to be at his best.
