Default Dead Sea Swim

Last week a bunch of crazy swimmers did the 17km swim across the Dead Sea between Jordan and Israel. The lowest place on earth.

I was there earlier this year, the water is 10x more salty than ocean water. You literally float on top of the water. I never tried to swim but floated on my back.

You really do not want any of this water in your eyes or any open cuts on your body.

Note the special masks and snorkels being used.

Here's the background

and here's some just released footage of the actual swim

Interesting Streak.

Would be cool to organize more and shorter swim races this way to see what technique the swimmers would invent.
