51-year-old attorney Eugene ‘Gino’ Hanrahan completed the Triple Crown of Open Water Swimming, with his 7 hour 26 minute 20 Bridges Manhattan Swim in New York on July 14th

Hanraham is shown on left after finishing a crossing of the Catalina Channel in 9 hours 36 minutes.

Becoming a Triple Crowner took some time. Back in 2007 at the age of 40, he completed his first leg, a 33.8 km crossing of the English Channel from England to France in 11 hours 21 minutes.

Kristian Rutford also completed a swim of note in the race, finishing his 22nd career circumnavigation swim around Manhattan Island, dating back to his first completion in 1988.
