The 25 male finalists in the Olympic marathon swim in Hyde Park tomorrow at 12 noon GMT will line up on the starting pontoon in the following order.

When watching the 25 marathon swimmers on television or online, the following numbers will be printed on the athlete’s hands, shoulders, and shoulder blades. It is often difficult to make out the swimmers without these numbers, although the color of their swim caps is also a helpful hint.

It should be noted that an estimated 30,000 people watched the women’s marathon swim race today.
