Ecuador Dominates Open Water In 7th Bolivar Games

The XVII Juegos Bolivarianos (17th Bolivar Games) are being held in Trujillo, Peru between November 15th-30th. The 5 km and 10 km open water swimming events were held in Puerto Salaverry last week where Ecuador swept the gold medals on both the men's and women's side.

In the 10 km event, Ecuador's Samantha Arevalo (shown on left) took the gold medal in 2:08:33 in a close victory over Venezuela's Vicenia Navarro who finished in 2:08:35 and Paola Perez in 2:09:10.

Samantha Arevalo was a busy athlete during the pool and open water swimming competition at the XVII Juegos Bolivarianos as she also won the 5 km race, the 800m freestyle and 3 relays as well as 3 silver medals in the 200m IM, 400m IM and the 1500m over a 7-day period.

Among the men, Ecuador's Ivan Enderica won his second gold medal in 1:57:51 over Venezuela's Johndry Segovia in 1:58:31 and Ecuador's Santiago Enderica in 1:58:47. The 22-year-old Olympian earned his first gold in the 5 km race two days earlier.

With athletes from Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Perú, Chile, Guatemala, Dominican Republic, Bolivia, Paraguay and El Salvador competing, it was a tough event with several athletes pulling out for various reasons.
