Swimmers of Lake Crossing

Swimmers at the starting line raise their hands in response to the host to show they're ready to go. The event consists of numerous elderly participants who are eager to show they're up to the task of crossing Lake Zurich from Mythenquai to Tiefenbrunnen (a 1500m distance). Named Stadtzürcher Seeüberquerung (which translates to lake crossing) is a non-competitive summer swimming event.
