Scientific Research During The Longest Swim

When Benoît Lecomte walks down the sandy beach on the eastern coast of Japan and steps off the coast of Chōshi in Chiba Prefecture in late May, he will begin the longest solo stage swim in human history.

The Century Swim That Took 41 Years

In the 1976 British Long Distance Swimming Association annual report [see here], produced by G. Trevor Smith and John K. Slater, they noted the first of three mano-a-mano races between International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame inductees Kevin Murphy and Des Renford.

"Kevin Murphy again hits the headlines as the winner of the challenge swim in Sydney Harbour, against Des Renford, the Australian champion. Full details are awaited, but I understand that it was a most exciting race with only minutes separating the two. Apparently the challenge is now extended to a 100-mile swim to take place in a few weeks time and we await the details with much interest. That is, so far as I am aware, the longest "Championship" ever contemplated.
