The Amazon has been swum April 14, 2007

Posted by Al in : weird , trackback

Mr Martin Strel, a Slovenian, had just become the first man to swim the entire length of the Amazon river. That’s quite a long way, about 5,256 Km, and took over 2 months to complete. Quite why he wanted to do this is unclear, however congratulations are due as 65 days of constant swimming, averaging 80Km per day, is no mean feat. Another person with too much time, and energy, on their hands.
