On Sunday, January 15, 2023, Neil Beck took on the Tampa Bay Frogman Swim in Tampa, Florida!
This open water swim is a fundraiser for the Navy SEAL Foundation and honors fallen Navy SEALs. This swim is especially important to Neil. Not only is he a graduate of the United States Naval Academy, but he swims this swim in memory of his nephew, who was a Navy SEAL.
The conditions for this year’s race were tough; Neil has been doing this race for many years and reported that only one year was tougher than this year! He used his lifetime of swimming experience (Neil has been swimming for 50+ years!) to change his stroke as-needed based on the conditions he was encountering during the race.
Neil felt strong and good when he finished. It was a great day to test his own skills and fitness as well as honor the memory of his nephew.
Well done, Neil!
