The athletes competed in different styles and distances, and there was also a Stand up Paddle race.

I had the opportunity to watch the swimming race start for the 3,5 k challenge for men and women categories and it was quite a beautiful spectacle.

In this post I share with you some of the photos I took at the beach, before I went to Copacabana sidewalk to watch the racers of another sport event, the Rio Half Marathon, who were passing by Avenida Atlantica. Those photos I will share with you later this week.

Have a nice week everyone!
