Sights set on elite company

Denmark local Steve Junk hopes to become the first Australian to complete the infamous Oceans Seven circuit when he attempts to complete the North Channel swim later this year.

The Oceans Seven comprises seven of the world’s major open-water channels and totals more than 200km in distance.

Mr Junk began open-water swimming in 1999 and in 2005 decided to swim the Strait of Gibraltar.
