A 37-year-old male triathlete presented with two episodes of acute onset of severe dyspnoea, cough and expectoration of pink frothy sputum during the swimming stage of two different races. On both occasions he was still able to continue the bike segment of the race but at a slower pace and symptoms improved spontaneously once he reached the shore and rested. All investigations conducted were normal leading to the diagnosis of swimming-induced pulmonary oedema.
