A Future Wave - Emily Brunemann, Michael Klueh Win Oceanside

A Future Wave – Emily Brunemann, Michael Klueh Win Oceanside


Emily Brunemann
and Michael Klueh are the fastest couple in the open water this side of Damián Blaum and Esther Nuñez and Christian and Nadine Reichert.

The world-class swimmers, newly engaged, traveled together from Michigan to the Southern California coast and jumped in the pumping surf to win the 83rd annual Oceanside Pier Swim.

Klueh won easily in 17:09 while Brunemann won the women’s field in 18:36.

Originally from land-locked Kentucky, Brunemann was more than a bit nervous, as was Klueh, a native of Indiana. But they both handled the surf like locals.
