Open water swimmers are in the midst of heavy training and focusing on their Olympic 10 km marathon swim selection meet preparations in South Korea this coming July.

The water in Odaiba Marine Park where the Olympic 10 km marathon swim will be held is expected to be very warm, very flat with very high humidity and very little wind. The course will be very easy to navigate – and polluted, especially if a rain comes in the week leading up to the event due to the heavily polluted urban runoff.

Hence in the Olympic pictogram, the Japanese designer came up with an appropriate design with a single turn buoy and a swimming figure.
