As the sport of open water swimming explodes around the world, there are occasionally a few brakes in the emergence of the sport.

The Glen S. Hummer Huntington Mile, established in 1957, was canceled this year due to lack of entrants.

Glen Hummer, the namesake of the event, would still be proud that the Huntington Mile went strong for 54 years.
