Since 1997, the Hurricane-Man 2.4 Mile and Pass-A-Grille Challenge 1000 Meter Swim in St. Petersburg, Florida has been cancelled twice including last year.

But the weather held.

And so did 15-year-old Sean Doolittle in the 2.4-mile race as he out-sprinted both Bryce Sutherland and Colton Gray as the trio turned the last buoy together, with veteran Chelsea Colwill following in their wake with the fourth fastest time overall.
