Comings And Goings Among Elite Open Water Swimmers

2008 Olympic 10K Marathon Swim coach John Dussliere, one of the leading technologists and strategic thinkers in the sport, developed a feeding stick with tiny cameras in order to capture the techniques and excitement of the frenzy around the feeding stations at elite competitions.

These images are from the Fran Crippen SafeSwim 10K won by Andrew Gemmell and Melissa Gorman.
