Istra Mile in Russia

Pavel Kuznetsov of Russia brought us this information about the Istra Mile on July 4th in Russia.

90 people swam the 1-mile race and 30 people participated in the more competitive 5K race in the Istra Water Reservoir an artificial lake amid a natural forest located about 45 kilometers from Moscow where the water temperature was 16°C. The winners of the 1-mile race were Anna Guseva in 21 minutes and 2 seconds and Anton Stepanov in 21 minutes and 6 seconds.

Russian national champion and world championship medalist Ekaterina Seliverstova (shown above) was the honored guest where she participated in the opening ceremony and awards ceremony, but did not swim like last year.
