I conquered the Seeüberquerung and didn't drown!

I wasn't the fastest, but certainly wasn't the slowest swimmer and I had a great time. There were all ages, shapes and sizes of people taking part, that's what I love about sporty Zürich - everyone is so active and joins in! 5017 swimmers took part...

The weather was gorgeous, the water (fairly) warm and the atmosphere on the other side of the lake fantastic.. Food, beer, warm summer evening, live band and my colleague to talk to - perfect!
