2020 was a critical year for all the human activities both economical and sport. Isolation and new habits have influenced, transformed and modified the normal relationships among the people. The have social distancing based on medical and heath reason has carried also a distancing of the people on the emotional level. Closing the border was a step back to the past in contrast with the modern visions of union and contemporary Europe.
Our idea of open water swimming, in consecutive stages, acquires a deeper symbolic value of union and overpass barriers trough Sport. The cross border concept of the competition enforced the connection between Slovenia and Italy, enhancing the synergy and exchanges between the communities.
