English Channel Swim

The first Greek team to ever take on the challenge!

The decision for the swim-crossing of the English Channel was phenomenal: the first Greek team to ever try it on a relay race. The race was dedicated to the Hellenic Society for the Protection of Disabled Persons. Our performance: We covered 45km in 12 hours and 12 minutes and in our category, we have the best time record worldwide, while no other team has ever achieved to surpass our record.

Swimmers: Evgenia Giannini, Sotiris Pastras, Elli Flegga, Apostolis Tsagkarakis, Vaggelis Zourmpakis, Konstantinos Mihos, Thodoris Zoumpoulakis, Vasilis Maroulis
