Great HEAD coverage at world’s largest
outdoor swim event

July 6-8 was a successful weekend for HEAD Swimming as official sponsor of Vansbrosimningen in Sweden.

Over 13 900 swimmers from 16 different nations came to Vansbro, 350km north of Stockholm, to take part in the world’s largest outdoor swim event. This was an increase of 15 % from last year.

The main race distance totals 3 000 metes in two different rivers, 2 000 meters along the current and the last 1 000 meters against. The winner finished at 30 minutes, 24 seconds. Water temperature of 17 degrees led a majority of swimmers to wear wetsuits.

The event was well-attended by media and for the first time broadcasted live in Swedish TV.

HEAD provided swim caps to all participants and showcased swim equipment, including the new swim suits 3.2.2 and Tri comp 12.
