It only seemed a matter of time and focus for the USA Swimming to win the FINA Open Water Championships Trophy.

For a country with the most number of open water swimming events, largest number of competitive swimmers, thousands of miles of coastlines and lakes, and a history of Olympic pool swimming success, USA Swimming was bound to stake its claim as the fastest overall team at the FINA World Championships in open water swimming at some time.

This year's team included Jordan Wilimovsky (gold 10 km, 5th 5 km team pursuit), Sean Ryan (4th 10 km and 5th 5 km team pursuit),Alex Meyer (11th 5 km and silver 5 km), David Heron (6th 5 km and 10th 25 km), Ashley Twichell (9th 25 km, 5th 5 km team pursuit, and 6th 5 km), Emily Brunemann (8th 25 km), Becca Mann (14th 10 km), and Haley Anderson (9th 10 km and gold 5 km) and was led by head coach Catherine Vogt who has plenty of international coaching experience since 2005.

USA earned 108 total points in the four open water swimming events with Italy in second with 99 points and Germany in third with 94 points.

The scoring in the FINA Open Water Championships Trophy rankings is as follows: 1st place in each race receives 18 points, 2nd place receives 16 points, 3rd place 14 points, 4th place 12 points, 5th place 10 points, 6th place 8 points, 7th place 6 points, 8th place 5 points, 9th place 4 points, 10th place 3 points, 11th place 2 points, and 12th place 1 point.
