Last time Christopher Swain swam the waters of Brooklyn’s Gowanus Canal, he didn’t contact gonorrhea. The second time’s the charm, though!

Swain, an environmental activist, spent his Sunday morning doing a breast-stroke through the famous Superfund site, which has tested positive for PCBs, cement, oil, mercury, lead, multiple volatile organic compounds, coal tar. Wearing a protective dry suit, Swain swam the entire 1.8-mile length, calling it “pretty disgusting.”

Will Swain keep swimming the Gowanus Canal until it gets cleaned up? Will he start swimming other polluted waterways? Will he finally contract gonorrhea??
