Two Pacific Palisades residents, Pat Hines and Gerry A. Rodrigues, will compete in the 7th annual Manhattan Island Marathon Swim on Aug. 27 in New York City.
Hines was an All-American back-stroker at the University of Miami in the mid-1970s and is a veteran marathon swimmer, bicyclist and triathlete. She will be trying for her second victory in the women's division in the swim of more than 27 miles around Manhattan Island. In 1986, she took first place among women and finished third overall.
Rodrigues, 25, a former Pepperdine University swimmer born in Trinidad, will be in his first Manhattan Island swim. A triathlete and ocean swimmer, he won swimming races in 1987 at the Malibu and Ventura piers.
