Simon ‘Hoots’ Huitenga knows the importance of sprinting. And that is what it came down to in the 2014 Pan Pac Championships 10km Open Water event. With less that a second between second and fourth it was all in for the finish. Australian and Perth City swimmer Simon Huitenga finished an incredible 4th. Displaying total adaptability after the Gold Coast Open water saga. Also racing in the 10km event at the Junior Pan Pac’s Perth City swimmers Sacha Downing finished 6th and Brett Fielding finished 8th in the world class field. Well done.
