Congratulations to Yasunari Hirai from Japan

Tasunari won the North Bondi Cold Power 2km Classic on Sunday in a sub 21 minute time and in doing so won a trip to Fiji to compete in the Fiji Swims.

What’s doubly great about Yasunari’s win is that almost no one seems to know him in Sydney open water swimming. His sub 21 minute time in the 2km race ensures that at the competitve front end of the pack it will be as fast as previous years in Fiji.

As for Sunday’s Bondi race, choppy water but great temperature, a super fast elevator out off the North Bondi rocks and plenty of Fiji Swims regulars in the race and among the age category placegetters including Louise Stevenson, Tori Gorman, Ryan Huckle and everyone’s favourite American Andrea Miller.

Congrats to North Bondi for a great race.
