Swimming in lane 2 off a handicap of 25 seconds, in the last few meters he overtook Tom Castieau - who seemed to have the race in the bag - to win by two seconds, in a new PB three seconds faster than he set in the heat swim.
Tom Castieau (11) took second spot, taking 9 seconds off his previous time before the meet, and Peter Castieau (15) finished third.
