One of the most passionate and prolific open water swimmers in Mexico, Christy Guille, passed away last week in Cancun.

Guille was 77 when she died, but she always swam and smiled. Always, always, always with a deep passion for the open water.

She swam in open water swims all over Mexico,” recalls Fernando Betanzos, a race director from Cancun. “From Chiapas to Alcapulco, she was always the first person to register for the swims. She loved the water and even did the 10 km Cancun to Isla Mujeres swim for many years.”

She will be sorely missed.
