Elliot Spaeder did not let down his team, family or friends today.

After months of preparing physically and after mentally preparing myself since high school, I was ready to attempt this great feat. Of course, I couldn’t have done this without some really important people in my life, Molly McCracken, my wife, and all my friends and family who have had my back 100%. I’ve realized recently how laid back I am because it seems that everyone else is super pumped for this even more than me or it could be the fact that I am extremely confident in my capabilities as well as my teams.

Thank you to Josh Heynes and Lake Erie Open Water Swimming Association for guiding us

His feat?

A 24.3-mile crossing from Canada to America in Lake Erie.

With a calm demeanor and quite confidence, Spaeder completed the third fastest time in history across Lake Erie in 11 hours 28 minutes.
