Por décima vez vuelvo a estar seleccionada para competir en lac St Jean 32 km (Canadá),” reported Rita Vanessa Garcia of Argentina. “Es la segunda fecha del Circuito Ultra Marathon Swim Series Fina, es una gran felicidad volver a representar mi querida ciudad Santa Fé y Argentina. Esta es una carrera muy particular, ya que es la más dura del circuito pero en lo personal es una de mis preferidas.”

In English, “For the tenth time, I am again selected to compete in the 32 km Traversée internationale du lac St-Jean in Canada. It is the second stage of the FINA UltraMarathon Swim Series.

It is with great happiness that I return to represent my beloved city of Santa Fe and country of Argentina. This is a very unusual career because it is the most difficult race on the professional marathon swimming circuit but from my personal perspective, it is my favorite race.”
