Driving along the highway from Tampa, one of open water swimming’s most impressive starts was held.

In the midst of hundreds of cars and thousands of individuals, the organizers of the Tampa Bay Frogman Swim conducted a solemn ceremony that paid tribute to fallen Navy SEALs. Videos and photos were shown in a huge outdoor screen as music played in massive speakers for all to see and hear from a distance.

At the end of the race on the other side of Tampa Bay, the organizers had moved the outdoor screen that was part of a large truck. The size and mobility of the screen was impressive and greatly appreciated by all the swimmers, volunteers and spectators.
