It Is Getting Cold Down Under

59-year-old Aussie Stephen Mamouney not only completed a high-altitude swim at 1113 meters on June 20th, but it was also an Ice Mile that he finished in 35 minutes 55 minutes.

Mamourey completed the Ice Mile in Lake Crackenback in New South Wales, Australia in 3.47°C water, observed by Phil Clements and witnessed by Alicia Anderson. His swim was the 679th Ice Mile in history, a remarkable growth of ice swimming around the world since Ram Barkai did the first Ice Mile in Lake Zurich, Switzerland in January 2009.
