On November 3rd, 2016, English open water swimmer Howard James crossed the English Channel in 11hours and 38minutes. It was a new World record for the latest Channel swim ever, breaking a record last set by Mike Reed, in 1979.
This wasn’t Howard’s first Channel swim. On May 16, he set a new World record for the earliest Channel crossing of 13hours and 13minutes, in water as cold as 9c.
It was really fantastic to promote both of Howard’s swims through the Red Bull website!
