New MSF Documented Swim - Dave Van Mouwerik - Lake Siljan, Sweden

Dave Van Mouwerik's 20.3-mile (32.7 km) swim across Lake Siljan in Sweden has been added to our growing library of MSF Documented Swims:

http://marathonswimmers.org/swims/2013/van-mouwerik-siljan

This swim was previously referenced on the Forum HERE and HERE. Also please see Dave's website for the swim, The Siljan Diary.

It is exceptionally documented - from the swim's original conception, and through its planning, execution, and recording. It reminds me why we created MSF Documented Swims in the first place - to show that the story and historical record of a marathon swim can go so far beyond a mere observer log.

Great work, @VanMou, and I'm sorry it took so long to get this published.

    @evmo, I am grateful for the high quality of all the projects that you undertake, and for the high bar that you set for the level of documentation of swims that are outside the jurisdiction of any federation.
    Bravo, man!
