Budapest (MTI) – A total 8,162 people plunged into lake Balaton on Saturday to swim 5,200 metres between Revfulop and Balatonboglar.
Organisers were happy to see some 1,000 participants more than last year, but noted that the event, organized for the 33rd time this year, had been attended by over 10,000 swimmers on several occasions.
Participants included well-known athletes, of whom Mark Papp had the best result among men with 1 hour and 1 minute. Olympic champion Eva Risztov scored the best female result, swimming just one minute longer.
