Keeping in the spirit of all the swimming that's been happening this summer between swim classes and the Olympics I thought I'd share these great photos of the Bosphorus Cross-Continental swim in Turkey that was shot by Andres Gonzalez.
This annual contest draws over 1,000 participants from 42 countries. There is great range in variety and age of the participants ranging from politicians, artists, and former Olympians, to 'bad-ass big Russian swimmers.' Which is why I especially like that the 2nd place winner was a 14 year old girl. So awesome.Ryan Lochte? (Didn't think so;). And after watching all of the women's gymnastics I think I've figured out my outfit for halloween. A ton of these, one of these, and finish it off with one of these instead of donning a leotard all night. Right?!
