Open Water Wednesday welcomed International Swimming Hall of Fame and International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame inductee Kevin Murphy to its online studios today.

“…In Loch Ness, I went unconscious for six hours because I went down in fact…when I am actually swimming, I hate it when I am in there. I spend the entire time thinking, ‘What am I doing here and when can I get out?'” What I enjoy is finishing.”
