Nasef Ahmed

Monday, 21 July 2014

A huge congratulations to Nasef Ahmed from Egypt who completed his solo swim yesterday. He had an amazing swim beginning at 03.57 and swam for 18hrs and 48mins (unratified) before landing near Wissant at 22.50. What made it even more amazing is that he is a double amputee.....one leg amputated above his knee and the other below! Amazing swim. His pilot was Fred Mardle on board Masterpiece. Well done to Nasef and the whole crew......
