THERE were contrasting emotions for the two British competitors as the 10 kilometre open water race ended in victory for a Liverpoolborn Greek at the World Championships in Barcelona.

For Jack Burnell there was elation after finishing 15th in only his fourth open water race, but for Dan Fogg it was an afternoon to forget as he came in 38th, just a year after placing fifth at the 2012 Olympics in London.

It was a ding-dong battle, but defending champion Spyridon Gianniotis underlined the benefits of experience to claim victory in one hour 49 minutes 11.8 seconds ahead of Olympic silver medallist Thomas Lurz and Oussama Mellouli, the 2012 champion.
