Escape From Alcatraz Triathlon - Swim Portion

This video shows the swim leg of the 2008 Escape From Alcatraz Triathlon. I was somewhere in that crowd, and I can assure you that it was as wild as it looks. Don't miss the dramatic rocking of the boat as athletes move to one side in preparation for their jump. While I do my open water swimming without a wetsuit, they are legal in most triathlons. Their buoyancy gives you a substantial advantage, so I chose to compete in one that day.
