OPEN WATER: Rio 2016 Women’s results – Olympics

Netherlands’ Sharon van Rouwendaal won Olympic gold in the women’s 10,000m open water swim, with Briton Keri-Anne Payne missing out on a medal.

France’s Aurelie Muller had won silver but was disqualified at the finish line on Rio’s Copacabana Beach.

A replay showed the world champion forcibly holding Italy’s Rachele Bruni down with her right arm while trying to touch the finishing board.

Brazil’s Poliana Okimoto was upgraded to a bronze medal, with Payne seventh.

Van Rouwendaal, 22, broke away shortly after the halfway mark and led for the remainder, finishing in one hour 56 minutes 32 seconds.
