Expect The Unexpected - Penny Palfrey Pulled

Expect The Unexpected – Penny Palfrey Pulled

Her mouth hurts, but other then that she is great,” reported Captain Mitch about the indomitable Penny Palfrey as she entered the second night of swimming strongly.

With great promise, Palfrey was well on her way to Florida.

But the sport of open water swimming has one underlying principle: expect the unexpected.

While Mother Nature had cooperated for nearly 2 straight days, she suddenly switched moods.

Palfrey was pulled from the water after swimming for more than 40 hours. Around midnight on her second night of swimming, she could not continue her swim due to a stong southeast current. She is presently on her escort boat under the care of her crew heading back to shore.

Palfrey will hold a press conference today at 3 pm at the Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott in Key West, Florida.
