Pune man becomes first Asian to complete Ocean Seven Challenge

32-year-old finished the marathon by swimming across Cook Strait between the North and South Islands of New Zealand in 8 hours 37 minutes

The sea is as perilous as it is calm. And, no one knows that better than Rohan More who became the first Asian to swim across seven of the world's toughest ocean channels this month. On February 9, the 32-year-old resident of Senapati Bapat Road in Pune, swam across the Cook Strait between the North and South Island of New Zealand in 8 hours and 37 minutes. The Ocean Seven, a marathon-swimming challenge consisting of seven channel swims, is considered equivalent to the Seven Summits mountaineering challenge, that involves scaling the highest mountains on each of the seven continents. He is only the ninth person to complete it.
