PCS in Open Water Swims Lac St.-Jean and Magog

Aimeson King has been busy in the lakes of Quebec swimming open water swims in the past week.  After finishing 6th in the Lac St. Jean open water FINA World Cup 10km race, Aimeson competed in the Traversee de Lac St-Jean, a 32km FINA Grand Prix race in frigid waters, ~15 degrees Celcius near the start, ~18-19 degrees for most of the race.  It was Aimeson's first race over 15km in race, and Aimeson finished in 9th place among men in a time of 7 hours and 10 minutes.  Great Job Aimeson!

Aimeson then, after a week of recuperation and training, competed in a 10km race in Lac Magog, WINNING THE RACE.  Great Job!  He will finish his open water tour of Quebec in another 10km World Cup race in Lac Megantic this coming Saturday.  Wish him luck!

Richard Weinberger came second overall in a 2km open water sprint race in Magog this past Thursday, as a prelude to the 34km FINA Grand Prix Race in Magog he was hoping to complete.  Unfortunately, Richard became sick before the beginning of the race and had to pull out before it began.
