Pinoy Aquaman returns to open water

LONG-DISTANCE swimmer Ingemar “Pinoy Aquaman” Macarine is all excited for his first open water swim in more than two years after getting sidelined due to a left shoulder rotator cuff injury. Macarine, an environmentalist and lawyer by profession, will swim the waters in Buluan Island going to Serendipity Isle in Ipil, Zamboanga Sibugay, covering a distance of 3.5-kilometers on Monday, Feb. 24, 2020. The swim dubbed as Langoy Para sa Kinaiyahan ug Malungtarong Turismo is part of the activities in celebrating the 22nd anniversary of Zamboanga Sibugay as a separate province. Macarine’s last swim was on Nov. 13, 2017 from Pamilacan Island to Baclayon town in Bohol Province, his 34th open water swim and 17th marathon swim in his career. “My first swim since my injury. I lost 20 kilos since 2017. I did intermittent fasting and also I’m now a vegetarian,” he said. “I’ll take it on the swim at a time; I’m starting my return with a short distance swim.” (RSC)
