ACNEG looking back on 2017

Now, we say goodbye to the 2017. A year which has certainly been very sad for the family, for the loss of the most important piece of the team, our president Rafael Gutiérrez Mesa, after a severe illness. If there is one thing that we are clear, it is that we are going to continue with its purpose, in the service of all swimmers who have a dream to cross the strait of Gibraltar.

Rafael Gutiérrez Mesa Leaves A Legacy Of Greatness

On September 12th, Rafael Gutiérrez Mesa passed away at the age of 59 years.

The founder and president of the Asociación de Cruce A Nado Del Estrecho De Gibraltar (Strait of Gibraltar Swimming Association) envisioned, developed and promoted solo and relay, both with and without wetsuits for able-bodied and disabled swimmers one-way, two-way and three-way crossings of the Strait of Gibraltar, 14.4 km between Spain and Morocco.

Adolph Kiefer Passes Away At 98 Years Old

Legendary swimmer and 1936 Olympic gold medalist Adolph Kiefer has passed away at the age of 98. Prior to his death, he was the oldest living American Olympic champion.

Kiefer passed at his Illinois home at 6:00 in the morning on Friday, May 5. He was a month shy of his 99th birthday.

The International Swimming Hall of Fame published a lengthy obituary today, recounting Kiefer’s legacy both in the pool and out. Kiefer suffered from neuropathy that kept him confined to a wheelchair late in his life, but he continued swimming, as he could still stand up in the water.
