First came the word.
And to us that word was "swimming".
The idea of organizing such a swimming marathon in Brasov aroused after a tournament in France, a water polo tournament, not a swimming one, as you might think.
In the week following that polo tournament, the "Enfants de Neptune" Sports Club organized a 24-hour swimming marathon. They hold it every June.
As we found this contest interesting, we decided to organize a similar one in Brasov. And, even though our swimming marathon is neither the first nor the only of this kind, it is ours and we love it.
Indirect participants seem to be equally delighted. Think of it: how could anyone resist joining the excitement provided by water, music,
beautiful girls, joy, sun, mountains and, of course, the contest itself? That would be the fun part of it. 'Unfortunately', each of the participants has to swim, too.
Not for 24 hours in a row as you may still believe, but for four 30-minute series every 6 hours, as every team consists of twelve members.
