How big is marathon swimming on the world’s stage? How interesting are the lives of swimmers?

If International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame Honour Swimmer Susie Maroney is any indication, the answers are ‘pretty big’ and ‘very’.

The Daily Mail broke the story about how Cuba-to-Florida swimmer and 2-time Manhattan Island Marathon Swim winner Maroney has fallen into love with Perry Cross (read more here).

Quadriplegic Cross is the inspiration behind and namesake for the Perry Cross Spinal Research Foundation. He was paralyzed due to a rugby accident at the age of 19.
