MSF Documented Swims - 2020
Announcing the first MSF Documented Swim of 2020, Emma Radford's course-record setting swim in the River Derwent, Tasmania on New Year's Day.
Emma is only the 5th to complete this challenging swim since it was pioneered in 1973. International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame chairman-emeritus Chris Guesdon oversaw the swim, with Jai di Tommaso observing.
Emma's swim was ratified by unanimous consensus of the MSF Core Group along with Monterey Bay Swimming Association president Scott Tapley, who served as an independent external reviewer and temporarily replaced Emma on the committee.
Congratulations, Emma and team!
