Neil Agius - Sicily to Malta
In what is likely to be one of the more significant swims of the year, Neil Agius will attempt a swim from Sicily to Malta, starting in a couple of hours (0500 Central European Time). Neil represented Malta in the 2004 Olympics (400 Free). The shortest distance across this channel is 85.5 km, but Neil's intended route is a bit longer, ~99km. He has declared MSF Rules and the intention to submit to MSF Documented Swims.
