Watch: Trio begin 70km swim around Malta

Three swimmers are out to raise awareness about marine litter

Three swimmers began a gruelling 70-kilometre swim around Malta on Friday afternoon, as they seek to raise awareness about marine litter.

Swimmers Neil Agius, Gilbert Bartolo and Richard Zerafa jumped in the water at Marfa at 6pm, taking the first strokes in what will be a 24-hour test of their will and determination.

Starting in Marfa, the swimmers will go on throughout the night, swimming clockwise around the island’s coast arriving back at Marfa by around 6pm on Saturday. 

They will be stopping briefly every 30 minutes or so to sip water and eat small portions of food.
