Views Of Traversée internationale du lac St-Jean

Maxime Lamontagne takes many fascinating – and interestingly subtle – photographs.

His recent work at the FINA/CNSG Marathon Swim World Series 10 km race at the 2019 Traversée internationale du lac St-Jean held in Quebec, Canada on July 21st offered interesting insights in the actions of professional marathon swimmers.

Italy’s Rachele Bruni won the 10 km race in lac St-Jean after traveling 30 hours from Gwangju, South Korea – where she competed in the FINA World Championships – to Quebec, Canada.  But it appears that she – and her Italian teammate Alice Franco were in no rush at the start [see photo above of the two Italian swimmers on the start pontoon in black swim caps].
