Cook Strait Swim, New Zealand

Heart breaker for Steve Redmond

It was a heartbreaking attempt of Japan's Tsugaru Strait by Ireland's Steve Redmond.  After several hours of swimming and still feeling strong, weather conditions deteriorated and his swim was stopped.  Safety of swimmer and crew is always a priority. Weather will always dictate the outcome of a swim.  Steve was attempting his final challenge of the Oceans' Seven to become the first person in history to accomplish this mighty feat. Once the weather improves, I'm hoping  Steve will have the opportunity to attempt the Strait again.  I know that he can do it and the world does too.  Go Steve!
