This sunday morning, at Copacabana beach, the open water swimming event “Rei e Rainha do Mar” (which means “King and Queen of the Sea”) gathered together many amateurs and professional swimmers of all ages.
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!
