I’m a swim film festival fan, and I love this short swimming video, Lake Ontario Swim, captured by Miguel Vadillo.

I am always on the lookout for great swim videos. If you have an interesting or beautiful swimming-related video and/or animated short, please submit to Gold Medal Mel Stewart at swimswam to be featured. We appreciate all points of view on pools, lakes, rivers and oceans. Please include a little background on why you captured the video and the equipment you used (cameras, lens, editing software, etc.). Feel free to add your own story as well, 175 to 200 words works best.

From the producer of this video:

On August 10-11, 2010 Miguel Vadillo (malva) swam across one of the most unpredictable and wonderful bodies of fresh water on the planet: Lake Ontario. He became only the 44th person in history to successfully conquer the lake but beyond that, the marvelous team that supported the swim was able to raise over 12,000 Canadian dollars for swim and water safety programs in Ontario, trying to do something to avoid preventable drownings among young immigrants.
