Washington's Crossing: Swim Across the Potomac
Congratulations to all the swimmers who completed the largest crossing of the Potomac River in history. The
2015 Queen and King of the Potomac River are Amanda Levy and Brewer Matthews
with times respectively,
33:12 and 32:15.  Swimmers battled a stealth flood tide producing cross currents that challenged swimming a
direct course from the Alexandria, Va side of the Potomac River to National Harbor, Md.  All but three of a field
of 158 swimmers completed the crossing on a beautiful open water day of mid 70's with a light breeze. Notably,
WaveOne swimmers, Martha Huizinga finished 7th with a time of 34:43, and Special Olympics swimmer, Jennifer
Mitchell of Alexandria, Va completed her first unassisted crossing in a time of 1:21:25.
