Jose Luis Larrosa broke the course record of American Lexie Kelly with his victorious swim at the 21 km Tabarca Marathon Swim (Maratón Acuático Tabarca-Alicante) between Tabarca Island and Alicante city off the Mediterranean coast in Spain.

51 swimmers started, 49 finished as 5 safety boats, 6 Jet Skiers, 54 kayakers, an ambulance and lifeguards stood watch over the field. “There were also nearly 600 spectators cheering from shore,” said Larrosa who set a course record in 4 hours 38 minutes. “With 6 countries represented, there were swimmers from Argentina, France, Poland, Austria, Spain and Hungary. Clara Perez won the women’s race in 6 hours 20 minutes while Alberto Pérez Díaz was second in 5 hours 5 minutes and Argentinian Fernando Espina Velaz was third in 5 hours 14 minutes.”

Hosted by the Acanta Swimming Club, expectations are high for next year’s edition with an even greater representation from international athletes.
