Seeing Red In The Open Water

Seeing Red In The Open Water

This photo courtesy of Christian Palma shows Andreas Waschburger of Germany competing in the 15 km FINA Open Water Swimming Grand Prix event in Cancun, Mexico.

His right arm remains in front ready to take the next stroke as he readies his mouth for his drink of blood red hydration.

He knows every second counts. He finished third in this 3-hour race by less than 2 seconds.
