Despite an estimated 24,000 freshwater crocodiles that live in Lake Argyle in Western Australia, nearly 50 swimmers competed in the Lake Argyle 10K marathon swim classic this weekend.
71-year-old Ian Mcartney from Bathurst in New South Wales gave an interview to the ABC Rural, "If I could possibly do it before I die, I'd like to swim the entire dam. The beauty of the place, that's enough to bring anyone back."
