Why do this swim

For an event like this, you train years on end in chlorinated swimming pools, follow the black lines at the bottom, dodge old ladies and kids corckscrew dives: the Bosphorus International Swim. An event that truly lives up to its name, because it connects Europe to Asia. In a 6.6 K (4.4 mi) race you swim Istanbul’s Hellespont Strait. Strong tides and a maximum of 90 minutes to complete the race means you have to come prepared.
