Smiles Of Open Water Swimming Champions

Smiles Of Open Water Swimming Champions

Steeve Tremblay provided post-race photos of the medalists at the recent FINA 10K Marathon Swimming World Cup race that was held in Roberval, Canada. The smiles of the medalists lit up the finish area.

Chip Peterson and Christine Jennings took the top honors (full results posted here).

In the women’s race, Christine (shown touching first in the photo on left) just barely out-touched Eva Fabian (shown touching a split second later).

Since moving from sea-level in Minnesota to her home state of Colorado and training in the high altitude in the Rocky Mountains, Christine has really started to come on strong at the world level.

Despite her close loss – and even after she was red-carded while leading the world 10K championships – Eva’s smile continues to light up the shoreline.

Her infectious enthusiasm for all things open water is contagious.
