The July 14th edition of the 20 Bridges Manhattan Swim was a smoother, faster circumnavigation swim around Manhattan Island in New York than its previous version.

39-year-old Nathan Payas from Gibraltar not only won the race, but also completed the Triple Crown of Open Water Swimming, one of his many career achievements including setting a record in an unprecedented 24 km Double Round the Rock of Gibraltar.

His time of 7 hours 21 minutes was the last leg of the Triple Crown after his 9 hour 13 minute crossing of the English Channel in 2016 and his 9 hour 34 minute crossing of the Catalina Channel in 2017. It served as a charity swim [see here].
