“The third annual Tampa Bay Frogman swim was held yesterday. I have to admit that it took being here to fully appreciate what the event was really about. It was easy to get caught up in the swimming part of the event – some swimming superstars participated. I was fortunate to meet Olympian Brooke Bennett, and Craig Lenning who has accomplished the Swimming Triple Crown. But the day and event weren’t about the swimming. 

I know that I can’t express what the event was really about. Somewhere between the Opening Ceremony, where they read aloud the names of SEALs who died in service to our country, and the Closing Ceremony, where they talked about the incredible sacrifices made by some SEALs and the hope of those overcoming serious injury, I lost count of the number of times my eyes welled up and I realized the event had nothing to do with swimming.” 

-Triple Crown swimmer and multiple Frogman Swim finisher Anthony McCarley
