A swarm of large, stinging jellyfish attacked female swimmers in the World Swimming Championships off of St. Kilda Beach in Melbourne, Australia, Tuesday. Winds blew the jellies, most likely of the massive lion’s mane variety, into the course area, where they tormented participants throughout the race. Most of the women emerged from the water covered in red rashes from head to toe. Said second-place finisher, Cassandra Patten, “It sounds weird, but it actually broke up the swimming a little bit. You’re going, ‘Ohhh, I’ve been stung. Ohhh, I’ve been stung again.’”
