History was made on December 10 as one woman taught the men a lesson in round two of the State New Zealand Ocean Swim Series. The 2009 world cham- pion Melissa Gorman of Australia dominated the women's and men's fields in the State Paihia Clas- sic, in her first venture on this side of the Tas- man. Gorman finished 22 seconds ahead of 18- year-old men's winner Stefan Talbot of Paku- ranga, and one minute 23 seconds ahead of Australian based Kiwi Cara Baker in the 3.3km swim from Russell to Paihia. It's pretty exciting. I don't think I've ever really been in a race where the boys have been happy to sit on my feet,'' Gorman says. It was also the first time Gorman had ever worn a full wetsuit, let alone raced in one. Talbot was the men's favourite heading into the race. I stuck with Melissa most of the way. She's a very good swimmer and she just got me at the end there,'' said Talbot, who won the men's race, 40 seconds ahead of Gra- ham O'Grady of Hamil- ton. Around 800 swimmers aged between six and 81 took the plunge in rec- reational and competi- tive swims. Included in those who took on the full 3.3km race between Russell and Paihia was Lord of the Rings star Bruce Hop- kins who swam his late brother's ashes across in a pouch in his shorts. Hopkins had tried in vain to tempt his Northland-based brother into competing last year, and he since passed away suddenly. Results: Women: Melissa Gor- man (Australia) 37m25s, 1; Cara Baker (Paku- ranga) 38m48s, 2; Brenda Russell (Auck- land) 42m18s, 3; Eliza- beth May (Epsom) 43m 43s, 4; Candra Hansen (Hamilton) 51m49s, 5. Men: Stefan Talbot (Pakuranga) 37m47s, 1; Graham O'Grady (Ham- ilton) 38m28s, 2; Brent Foster (Ellerslie) 38m 45s, 3; Ben Campbell- Macdonald (Wellington) 39m55s, 4; Andrew Pul- lon (Hamilton) 40m01s, 5.
