The Faces And Emotions Of Open Water Swimmers

Courtesy of WOWSA, Huntington Beach, California.

Open water swimmers and triathletes come in all different sizes, shapes and ages.

Their abilities range from novices to pros.

And their outlook, fears and perspectives, especially before a race, are usually quite evident, clearly written all over their faces.

Where do you fall in the range of emotions before an open water swim – like Lynn Kubasek (happy from the USA), Angela Maurer (nervous from Germany), Ashley Twichell (excited from the USA), Ky Hurst (anxious from Australia), Chad Ho (focused from South Africa), Guillermo Bértola (determined from Argentina), Alexander Studzinski (serious from Germany), or Ana Marcela Cunha (peaceful from Brazil)?
