CORONDA, ARGENTINA – A few days before the 2013 FINA Open Water Grand Prix event -Maraton Rio Coronda 57k swim (down river) the competitors visited the finish town of Coronda for a welcome presentation, “boat parade”, and a sprint race on the final meters of the course they will do on Sunday.
The town had a great turnout to see and cheer for the International swimmers.
This was likely the first and last gas station parade I will get to see. They even had two sets of sponsor girls at the event. The girls in green were the SpeedyAgro girls and the red and yellow girls were the Coronda Shell Girls.
