New Record Set by James Jonsson for Bear Lake Crossing
I just got an email from James Jonsson this afternoon. He successfully swam the length of Bear Lake, and set a new record while he was at it. James finished the swim in 8:53:26 which is well below the two other crossings that I am aware of by Neal Phelps (13 hours with wetsuit and fins) and John Quackenbush (15 hours). I am hoping to post more information on his record-breaking swim in the next few days. Congrats James!
