The Olympic 10K Marathon Swim at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games is scheduled to be in the very warm, very flat, tranquil Odaiba Marine Park in Tokyo Bay.

For fast distance swimmers accustomed to racing in a pool, this is the ideal location for a marathon swim.

So with David Aubry of France ripping off a very fast 800m freestyle at the 2019 French Short-Course Swimming Championships today, he has inserted himself in podium position discussions. His 7:31.60 time is the fourth fastest short-course 800m freestyle of all time.

Aubry picked up the 10th Olympic spot at the FINA World Championships Gwangju, South Korea this year.
