2020 Polar Bear Swim Winners!

Jan 02, 2020

The 2020 Polar Bear swim was another huge success as we celebrated the 40th Anniversary of this strange and exhilarating tradition. 

Over 500 swimmers and 1300 spectators were greeted by an uncharacteristically warm and sunny day (11 degrees!). Unfortunately, that didn't save them from a brisk dip in Boundary Bay. 

Congratulations to everyone who braved the waters, specifically our winners:

1st Place - Cullen Jamieson (Delta, BC)

2nd Place - Harlan Theaker (Delta, BC)

3rd Place - Steven Tubbs (Burnaby, BC)

Swimmer from Farthest Away - Jenine O'Brien (Margaret River, Austrailia)

Oldest Swimmer - Michael Harbott (84 years)

We look forward to seeing you next year!
