Some of you may remember Janet Manning’s amazing Chris Geene Lake victory story from last year. Well Janet was back in 2010 and nabbed a 4th place finish in her very competitive age group. Way to go Janet! I don’t even mind that you beat me!
Another great Chris Greene Lake story from this summer is featured on the USMS Web site. From the article:
Calvin Barnes, 86, and Richard Selden, 88, also made waves at the event. Barnes finished first with a time of 1:26:27.21 and Selden came in right behind at 1:27:32.40. The two men earned the distinction of becoming the only two Americans in the 85 – 89 age group known to have raced in a two-mile cable swim. They met for the first time at the awards ceremony, where they shook hands while being recognized for their achievements.
