Austin Rester Swims Across Ohio River

Beach volleyball player, Austin Rester, passingMaybe he just needed the cash. Maybe he wanted the publicity. Either way, AVP player Austin Rester got both when he swam the Ohio River on a dare this weekend during the AVP Louisville Open, netting a reported $900 reward.

The spunky 26-year-old borrowed some spandex from Matt Prosser (whaa?) and set out with a spotter boat to make the trek across the cold-ass Ohio river.

Despite the weirdness of wearing another dude's spandex, which undoubtedly affected his focus, Rester powered though to finish in a respectable hour's time and a hypothermic core body temperature of 94 degrees.
