LONDON --- Former Georgia swimmer Troyden Prinsloo came in 12th in the men’s open water marathon on Friday at the Olympics.

Prinsloo, representing South Africa, posted a time of 1 hour, 50 minutes and 52.9 seconds in the murky waters of The Serpentine in Hyde Park. The 25-man field completed six laps of a 1.66-kilometer course as fans lined both banks of the rectangular lake.

This was Prinsloo's second appearance in the Olympics. He represented South Africa in the 2008 Beijing Games in the 1,500-meter freestyle. Prinsloo won the NCAA title in the 1,650-yard freestyle and the SEC crowns in the 500- and 1,650-yard freestyle in 2009.

The winner of Friday’s race was Tunisia’s Ous Mellouli, who finished in 1 hour, 49 minutes and 55.1 seconds. Mellouli became the first swimmer to win medals in both the pool and open water at the same Olympics. He won the bronze in the 1,500-meter freestyle last week.
