One cool medal at the 480m race at the Coupe de Noël in Switzerland – with historical roots that date back to 1906.

The Coupe de Noël is a popular annual open water swimming competition created in 1934 when 9 swimmers competed in the 125 meter swim.

The event is the last remaining aquatic event in various French and European cities, inspired by the popular success of the Coupe de Noël in Paris, a race on December 25th across the Seine that was established in 1906 and stopped in 1940.
