Kevin Sullivan Blazes Rare Path In The Open Water

It is unusual when a member of a board of director of a national governing body does an open water swim. Extraordinarily rare. As in almost never.

But USA Triathlon’s Kevin Sullivan is different.

The 52-year-old American former track and pool swimmer from Chelmsford, Massachusetts won the wetsuit division in the WOWSA World 10-mile Swimming Championships held in Lake Memphremagog, Vermont. His time was 4 hours 12 minutes.

Sullivan is on the board of directors of USA Triathlon, serving as its Secretary and the Northeast Region Representative. The inductee in the University of Vermont Athletic Hall of Fame after a career in both swimming, track, and cross-country has completed an Ironman triathlon and numerous multi-sport events for over 30 years – and now a 10-miler.
