September 13, 2015

Angélica Astorga (pictured), 18, of Cartago took home first place in the Cruce Aguas Abiertas Golfo Dulce 5-kilometer swim while Marco Barquero, 16, of Heredia won the 1.5-kilometer race Saturday in Golfo Dulce on Costa Rica’s southern Pacific coast. Around 200 swimmers competed in the two races on Saturday morning and 30 more will return to the water Sunday to trek the full 14 kilometers across the gulf, swimming from Golfito to Puerto Jiménez. Beginning at 6:30 a.m. Sunday, swimmers will race across the gulf for the first time in the event’s history. On July 4, 20-year-old José Manuel Cullell became the first known person to swim across Golfo Dulce.
