When A Gator Becomes A Mermaid

Eney Jones, a former top swimmer at the University of Florida (Gators) and over 20-time finalist at the USA Swimming national pool championships, is a classic crossover athlete.

Not only did she win her age-group at the 200-, 400- and 1500-meter freestyles at the 2008 US Masters Swimming national championships, but she also swam on a top Maui Channel Swim relay, won the Aumakua Swim in Maui, got third in the Waikiki Roughwater Swim and won the 2008 FINA World Masters Swimming Championship 5K in Perth, Australia.

The personable and ever-energetic Eney now lives in the Rocky Mountains, far from the oceans where she is most comfortable, but she continues to offer open water swimming instruction.
