The first Austria Open Water Cup is underway with the 5 swims around the country.

Hungarian marathon swimmer Attila Manyoki reported, “300 swimmers enjoyed the first event in Stubenberg.

The second event was in Tirol at the Hechtsee, a fantastic lake in a fantastic area. It was perfect for an open water swim. The next swim on the circuit will increase in distance at 7 km in Ottenstein.”
