The Czech competitor Gabriela Grezlova took gold for the women with a 7min 59sec performance.  2015 World Champion from Spain Aleix Segura Vendrell took home gold for the men with a solid 9min 23sec.

Competition organizer Mikko Anttonen told DeeperBlue.com:

“During the first day of finals the atmosphere by the pool was peaceful and focused. There was no cheering or applause during the static, since the athletes need a calm environment in order to relax fully for their performance. The organisation was again excellent, thanks to the large group of volunteers. The Impivaara swimming complex has made a big impression to our foreign guests: the multiple functions and airy architecture we are used to are not so common around the world.”
