Turkey Swimming Adventures of a Lifetime

Following my life-changing experience as the Honorary Guest in 2016 Samsung Bosphorous Cross Continental Swim… I made a promise to the Turkish Olympic Committee to return with my fellow Aussies in 2017!

True to my commitment, the Turkish Olympic Committee have kindly extended 100 entries exclusively for Aussies & Kiwis to join me in participating in the 29th edition of this iconic event.  Now imagine the comments from your swimming friends when you say, “I swam from Asia to Europe!”

The authorities of Canakkale” have also extended me official permission to co-ordinate the “Inaugural Gallipoli ANZAC Swim Tour” at Anzac Cove.
