The Hellespont Swim

30 August 2022

Louis swam from Europe to Asia, across the Hellespont strait in Turkey, one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world.

The swim was first completed by romantic poet Lord Byron in 1810, when he was 22 years old, uniquely the same age as Louis  was during his crossing.

Louis completed the 5km crossing in 1 hour 8 minutes.
