Special Summer Swimming In The Aegean Sea

Special Summer Swimming In The Aegean Sea

The 35 finalists in the Special Olympics World Summer Games 1.5K open water swim took to the Aegean Sea today for a practice session. The seriousness and excitement in the air was as evident as the sunshine on the beautiful summer day in Greece.

The swimmers listened carefully to the instructions and then took to the warm water with the energy of athletes hungry to prove themselves to the world.

And they will have that unprecedented opportunity tomorrow morning at the World Summer Games 1.5K swim.
