December 21, 2013

GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) — The United States has preserved its perfect record in the Duel in the Pool by beating the European All Stars in a tiebreaking race.

Both teams were tied with 131 points after 30 events over two days at the Tollcross Swimming Centre in Glasgow. The U.S. rallied after trailing 68-54 on Friday.

In the extra, final race — a mixed 4x50-meter medley relay — the U.S. won by 0.2 seconds to take the trophy.

The U.S. won all five previous Duels in the Pool, beating Australia in the first three editions and the Europeans in 2009 and 2011.
