The open water swimming starts today with the 5k's in freaking awesome Loch Lomond :wub:

Spoiler

I saw there's a marathon swimming thread, but today are the 5k's and that's quite simply not marathon swimming, so that thread definitely isn't the place for it.

When I saw "Loch" part I already thought it was Loch Ness. :p

I would sort of laugh my balls of in a bit of a cruel way if it turns out everyone was wrong about the Loch Ness Monster and one actually shows up in Loch Lomond during today's races.

unfortunately the weather conditions are not ideal...water is expected to be only around 13/15 degrees (which means that the swimmers will be allowed to wear the full "heavy" bodysuit)...

and this will probably influence also the final results...

 

the swimming marathon thread is dedicated to the world series (with all races over 10k), so this is the right thread for the open water swimming events at the european championships...

however, I hope there will be some tv coverage (and for open water swimming my best chance is my "beloved" rai, our public TV :yikes::facepalm::cry:)...

 

p.s. by the way, Loch Lomond used to be also the site of the Golf Scottish Open until a few years ago (when they started to use only the socalled "links" kind of courses, meanwhile Loch Lomond is a wonderful "parkland" kind of course)...
