ACROSS LAKE TAHOE

Brett Blankner is a triathlete who is no stranger to swimming long distances. Blankner swam butterfly for 2.4 miles across Lake Bryan and swam 22 miles across Lake Tahoe by front crawl. What makes this really remarkable is that Lake Tahoe is one mile wider than the English Channel – and at an altitude of 1,897 m!
