Open Water Swimming
Unlike swimming competitions in the pool, open water swimming competitions take place over long distances in natural bodies of water such as the open ocean, rivers and lakes. Also called water marathons, the competition distances are 5 km, 10 km and 25 km, and because they are affected by natural conditions, it is a gruelling discipline that requires knowledge and experience as well as technique.
* The discipline events may be subject to change.
