At the professional sprint race in Traversée Internationale du lac Memphrémagog, the pro swimmers were focused but friendly, competitive but amicable with one another before and after the race.

American Lexie Kelly (#19) was caught in the middle at the start where the men and women start together, but like the others, she never stopped smiling.

French swimmers Bertrand Venturi and Celia Barrot swept the podium at yesterday’s Parcours 2 km Pro Am race on the shores of Magog City.
