Swim Commissioner Quinn Fitzgerald explains, “The kick-off dinner is an annual event founded by former Commissioner Kurt Oeler to bring together the rough water community, celebrate past successes and set ambitious goals for the season ahead. Each year we select an important figure in the sport to inspire us.
This year we’re thrilled to be joined by Antonio, the seventh person in the world to complete the Oceans Seven, a marathon swimming challenge consisting of seven open water channel swims. Argüelles’ journey was chronicled last year on the front page of the New York Times.”
