USA strong in long distance swimming

I am now fully regretting not going out to long distance swimming with Tony. Then again, it’s probably much more fascinating on TV. How do these women keep up this pace for 6 miles? What makes it really interesting, of course, is that there is a somewhat local swimmer in it in Santa Clara native Haley Anderson, now of Granite Bay. She’s in fourth after just about two hours of swimming. Arms of steel.

Look at that! She just finished with the silver medal behind Hungary’s Eva Risztov. 1:57:38.2 for the winner, 1:57:38.6 for Anderson. Can you imagine .4 seconds being the difference after six miles and two hours of swimming. What a race, a sprint to the finish in marathon swimming!


Look for Tony’s photos soon.
