A sport that requires unique swimming and focus skills
Marathon swimming made its debut at the Games in 2008 in Beijing but quickly enraptured the audience due to its challenging conditions and incredible skills that need to be combined in the athletes to make it through the 10km of open water. Compared to most swimming competitions that take place in the safety of a swimming pool, where each competitor is contained by their own lane, the open water 10km marathon takes place in the ocean where swimmers have to compete against the natural water currents, too. This sport demands high concentration and a good strategy from the athletes as it takes up to two hours to complete and athletes have to keep track of their energy and progress. Apart from having to be in tip-top physical shape, they need to bear in mind how hydrated they need to be for the race, how fast they can averagely swim to keep it up, and how to deal with weather, currents, waves and sunlight angles.
