Sunday 18th of November
An open water swim, hosted by the international swimming organisation FINA, took place on Sunday at the Friedenhau dam.
A small amount of participants took part in the 1000 metre swim, which was won by one of the leading Namibian Swimmers Tristan MacDonald - with a time of just over 14 minutes.
More open water swims are to follow next year, however before 2008 arrives there is the Pupkewitz Jetty Mile Aquathon in Swakopmund in December - check out the details here - don't miss this chance to swim in the Atlantic Ocean!
