Robert Vasiliu Completes A Peace Mile In 4.1°C

Paul Georgescu, founder of the Ice Swimming & Open Water Romania Association and the Romanian Triple Crown of Open Water Swimming, reported, “Today was a special day for the Romanian ice swimming. Robert Vasiliu just completed an Ice Mile in 36 minutes 24 seconds. I named his mile THE PEACE MILE and everybody wore a white t-shirt.  The water temperature was 4.1°C and air temperature was 4°C.  The official observers were myself and Bogdan Mihai Ionita.

In addition to the Romanian national ice swimming team that captured 10 medals (2 gold, 4 silver, 4 bronze) at the IISA 4th World Championships in Głogów, Poland, this performance of Robert is another dream come true for me.”

The event took part in the same pool where Georgescu did his Ice Mile in 2019, the Daimon Pool.
