Under the great big Texas sky, on April 28th, 200 swimmers from ages 12 to 75 years young  braved the unseasonably cool 16°C waters of Lady Bird Lake to swim in the 17th Annual Winning Isn’t Normal Cap 2k Open Water Swim.

38-year-old Adrian Cameron of Austin, Texas won the 2 km swim in 21:43.11 which is the second fastest time for this swim to date.

Coaches Robert Kelly and Darla Kelly went two-for-two when their Sam Rayburn High School boys and their Pasadena Memorial High School girls each took the High School Open Water Championship division.

As well as being one of the only chances to legally swim in Lady Bird Lake, the swim facilitates fundraising for UsTOO for Prostate Cancer support and also for Swimability which helps fund the Colin’s Hope pre-K program that provides swim and water-safety lessons for kids at risk.
