Shivering by an open water swimmer is like experiencing…

…a wipeout by a surfer
…a nose bleed by a boxer
…road rash by a cyclist
…a missing tooth by an ice hockey player
…a hard tackle by a football player
…an ankle sprain by a volleyball player
…shin splits by a runner
…cuts and scrapes of a skateboarder
…lacerations of a rugby player
