Ironman open water swimmers


Björn and Andreas are two triathletes and when you follow them along on instagram it is obviously that they are best friends pushing each other with lots of fun and laughter to the limit. They told me one day that they really would love to swim through the whole lake Alster in Hamburg. I offered to take my SUP and camera and we met 2 weeks later at sunrise at a jetty and off we go.People were stopping on streets and bridges waving and cheering when they saw them swimming all the way. I would sometimes hit them slightly with my paddle to guide them the way or to tell them its time to take a photo stop. Andreas did this year's Ironman in Hamburg where unfortunately the swimming part was cancelled due to bad water conditions in the Alster. Björn did a water race about 6k a little later. Both are such good open water swimmers and Triathletes. So guys, what's next?  Instagram @elbtriharmonie & @tri_koldi
