Ferry Weertman (1:52:59) has given the Netherlands a sweep of the Olympic open water swimming events, winning the men’s 10-kilometer race at the Rio Olympics. Spiros Gianniotis (1:52:59) of Greece takes the silver and France’s Marc-Antoine Olivier (1:53:03) claims the bronze.

The judges went to the cameras after 10 kilometers could barely separate a massive number of swimmers, as the grueling marathon swim that is the men’s open water race ended with incredibly high drama.

The split-second finish saw Netherlands swimmer Ferry Weertman slap the board just ahead of Greece’s Spiros Gianniotis, claiming gold for the Dutch.
