When an athlete crosses a finish line or touches ground after an open water swim, especially when they achieve their goal, their feeling of joy is obvious and apparent. Ferry Weertman of the Netherlands demonstrated his feelings seconds after winning the 15 km FINA Open Water Swimming Grand Prix off the Ocean Maya Royale resort in Playa del Carmen, Mexico.
