Adam Walker & Ocean's Seven
Pain only lasts for a day, success lasts for a lifetime!
What is 'Ocean's Seven?'
Ocean's Seven is a group of 7 long distance swims scattered across the globe: Irish Channel, the Cook Strait, the Molokai Channel, the English Channel, the Catalina Channel, the Tsugaru Strait and the Strait of Gibraltar. It has only been completed 4 people and no British person has completed this incredible challenge. Adam Walker is set to be the first Briton not only to complete all seven swims, but to have successfully completed them on the first attempt.
Man or Machine?
Adam Walker or 'Mad Adam' as nicknamed, by his Water Polo team made the big decision to undertake Oceans Seven spontaneously while he was on a plane to Australia. He watched a movie, ‘On A Clear Day’, which is about a character named Frank, who has lost his job and is determined to salvage self-esteem, as well as tackle personal demons, by swimming the English Channel.
Adam wants to be the first British man to complete the Oceans Seven challenge. So far, Adam has conquered 6 of the 7 swims; English Channel, Strait of Gibraltar, Molokai Channel, Catalina Channel, Tsugaru Channel, Cook Strait. His next challenge is the Irish Channel in August 2014.
