TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - A total of 461 swimmers from 14 countries, including Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Spain, Vietnam, Ukraine, and Belarus, participated in the 2022 Oceanman Bali (Indonesia) Open Water Swimming Championship in Jimbaran on Saturday.

The 2022 Oceanman Bali Open Water Swimming Championship was opened by Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy Sandiaga Uno, and started at 6:40 a.m. local time in four categories: Oceanman 10 KM, Half Oceanman 5 KM, Sprint 2 KM, and Oceankids 500 M.

The participants from the 10 KM to 500 M categories took turns swimming from the starting point of Muaya Beach in a resort area in Jimbaran.

The swimming path formed a triangle, with the shortest side distance of 333.3 meters, the medium-length side of 666.6 meters, and the widest side for the 10-KM category being 1.66 kilometers each.

Buoys are placed along the swimming path to prevent participants from swimming out of the lane.

Furthermore, the Oceanman committee also dispatched lifeguards and professional swimmers to watch over the participants while ensuring their security and safety.

At the 2022 Oceanman Indonesia, Tourism and Creative Economy Minister Sandiaga Uno along with several national swimming athletes, such as Aflah Fadlan Prawira, Glenn Victor Sutanto, I Gede Siman Sudartawa, and Timotius Mulyadi, participated in the two-kilometer sprint category.

The average national swimming athlete was able to swim for approximately 30 mins, and the top 10 swimmers arriving first at the finish line were recorded.

Oceanman Indonesia is the largest open water swimming competition held by two Indonesian Olympians: Albert C. Sutanto and Felix C. Sutanto.

This year's championship, held at Muaya Beach, Jimbaran, Saturday, became the second one to be organized by the two brothers after they successfully held Oceanman Indonesia at Sanur Beach, Bali, in 2021.

The first Oceanman Open Water Swimming series was launched in 2015.
