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!

Holy cow! With all this talk of the Bear Lake Swimming Federation, I'm all excited just to swim it at some point. Finishing will be the goal. That time is unbelievable!
