Thomas Petersen is an active 70-year-old open water swimmer, coach and triathlete from Tampa, Florida.

The extraordinarily energetic masters athlete has traveled all over his home state of Florida and as far away as San Francisco and the Cayman Islands to compete in his chosen sports.

His speed remains mightily impressive.

He finished 370th out of 1,000 swimmers at the Flowers Sea Swim in the Cayman Islands this year. But he has also regularly competes in the Hurricane Man Rough Water Swim, the Tropical Splash, sprint triathlons and the Alcatraz crossing as well as retains his credentials as a United States Masters Swimming Level 2 Certified Coach.

He also serves as a Swim Smooth clinic coach in Florida working in cooperation with Swim Smooth co-founder Paul Newsome.

He does all this in the open water despite working full time. He is certainly thinking of no retirement from competitions anytime soon.
