To say the very least it was an EPIC ending as Jamie swam into 100+ fans waiting to welcome him. As he emerged from the water to a crawling stand coaches and crew helped him out to hug his wife and daughter. Media crews and the white finish line were crossed making Jamie the first man to do a double crossing wetsuit swim of Lake Tahoe. Medical assistance was there waiting and after a quick review Jamie was well enough to stick with the crowd and acknowledged he would admit himself later in the evening as needed. Jamie sat with his family, friends and fans and soaked up the rewards of his accomplishment. The evening continued at Jakes with a congratulatory celebration of achievement. For the moment Jamie Patrick has lived his dream. Statement of Correction: This is NOT a world record. This swim DOES make history in Lake Tahoe.
