Nearly 4,000 participants took part in the King and Queen of the Sea (Rei e Rainha do Mar) on Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro today. There were so many human interest stories to be told and sights to behold.

The photo above shows the advertisements featuring Chad Ho, Allan do Carmo, Ashley Twichell, and Ana Marcela Cunha all over the city.

Volunteers and staff spent the day pumping up enormous, easy-to-sight turn buoys of all colors provided by different sponsors.

Lifeguards spent morning to evening assisting those swimmers who needed a helping hand.

Hydration stations provided supplies up and down the venue.
