The 2.4 mile swim was in The Tennessee River during 45 degree weather, and 68 degree water temps. Tamer's time of 53 min, 10 sec was more then 3 minutes better then his best time for the same distance.
Tamer's next open water swim is this weekend in Charleston, S.C. (Ya that place) for The Low Country Splash, where he will compete in the 5 mile open water swim.
Congratulations, and good luck this weekend.
