Whilst I am congratulating individuals, there are other swimmers who have been legendary in their efforts this year.
Emma France who has not only recovered from cancer, she then swam The English Channel for a second time just for the hell of it in an awesome 12h 58 mins smashing her PB. As if that was not enough a week later she swam around Jersey in 11h 46m. Incredible.
Mark Sheridan another top bloke, total gent and all round nice man. He also swam The Channel in 14h 33mins. Check out his website.
Nick Adams on virtually no training swam The Channel for THE TENTH TIME.
All are genuine honest generous swimmers who go out of their way to help others.
Congratulations and thanks for the inspiration.
Not to mention Adam Walker the first British Oceans 7 swimmer.
