Sporting event announcers around the world usually dress in attire ranging from coats and ties or casual wear. But what sport other than open water swimming have their announcers attired in swimsuits and headsets…only?

Carlos Ramos at the 88 km Maratón Hernandarias-Paraná down the Paraná River is suited appropriately during the warm-weather competition in Argentina.

Ramos works with Juan Manuel Esparza, Adriana Pachiotti, Raúl Quiroga, Andrés Solioz, and Alberto Sampayo to call the Maratón Hernandarias-Paraná at various points along the professional marathon swimming competition on the FINA Open Water Swimming Grand Prix circuit.
