'From fanaticism to barbarism is only one step' - Diderot

50 metres? Nah! What about 3,272 miles then!

Do you like to swim? I certainly do, but Slovene Martin Strel likes to swim more than most. This 52-year old has just spent 66 days to become the first person ever to swim the entire 5,265 Km length of the Amazon!

Mr Strel has already swum the Danube (3,004 Km), the Mississippi (3,797 Km) and the Yangtse (4,003 Km). Read his story and be amazed at almost every sentence.
