Audrey-Ann Caron won the 5,000-metre race for women aged 16 to 35; Caroline Tremblay was second and Laurie Dupont-Leduc was third.

It wasn’t just the swimmers who got wet at the fourth edition of Nageons au Témiscouata open-water challenge. Rain ponchos were everywhere and very handy (especially if you had a camera). The organizers of the event were a little nervous about the dark clouds and thunderstorm warning, and much happier when the blue sky appeared.
