Veljko Rogošic - Interesting article on the Daily News of Open Water swimming
Steve M has posted an interesting article on the Daily news of open water swimming ( LINK below ). I don't know enough about the swim and I will let others more knowledgeable about the swim question/agree with or challenge the article. One VERY big question I do have is around the distance .... the award he receives (photo attached to article ) states he was the first person in the world....etc to swim more than 200 K without getting out of the water etc. I have looked at the starting point for the swim and the ending point for the swim and agree that the distance is very close to the 121.49 miles(plus or minus 1 mile ) that they have mentioned - but 121.49 miles equates to 195 Kilometres not 225 kilometres as the award also states. It appears that they have used nautical miles not miles to do the calculations (121.49 nautical miles equals 225 kilometres ) I would welcome a discussion on this .
