Go Daddy Go, Two For Tomi

Tomi Stefanovski travels the world to compete on the FINA Open Water Swimming Grand Prix marathon swimming circuit.

As the senior statesman of the professional circuit, he finally won his first major race at the age of 42: the Traversée internationale du lac St-Jean. The former water polo player competed in his first FINA Open Water Swimming Grand Prix race in 1997.
