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.
