Guillermo Venturini Comes Back, 57 km Is The Start

65-year-old Guillermo Venturini from Miramar, Florida is motivated to stick around.

Venturini had a stroke a few years ago and was sick. But he took to the water and and started swimming again after a respite of 23 years. When he was a young man, he swam the 57 km from Santa Fe to Coronda in Argentina (along the Maratón Acuática Internacional Santa Fe – Coronda course). His health condition was an inspiration for him to attempt to do it again.

Focused and fit since 2011, he was able to achieve his goal of completing the most famous 57 km marathon river swim course in the world in 9 hours 44 minutes in 2014.

Motivated to live longer and more healthfully with his family, he is achieving his goal on terra firma through health developed in the open water.
