Open Water Swimming Career Highlights

24-Hour Swim

"I swam 36 miles in 24 hours and 12 minutes," recalled Muenzer. "It was August 18th and 19th in 1983. The day before my swim, a father and his daughter drowned off the starting point. The Canadian government with the help of Congresswoman Marci Kaptur worked it out that they would let me do the swim if I started up farther on the Point Pelee Peninsula. I wasn't able to do any other swims because I got married and had seven kids. So, I'm hoping to do 10-12 swims that have been in my bucket list. Time will tell."
