He made it!!! Madhu swam across Lake Ontario!!!
He swam 41.2 km… from Port Dalhousie to Coronation Park in Oakville… in 24 hours and 26 minutes… finishing at 9:35 pm on July 29, 2012! wow. That puts him in a very small and elite group of marathon swimmers in the world who have swum for over 24 hours. Truly amazing.
He is now the second person to swim the LOST Route from Port Dalhousie to Oakville, after Melanie Price pioneered the route last year!
There was a huge crowd watching him finish, just as the sun went down. He was in ridiculously good shape after finishing… I chatted with him and he was fine… Doctor John checked him out and he was fine physically too… although he might be a little tired tomorrow… and sporting about the funniest goggle and cap tan you ever saw! 😉
There will be more stories coming out over the next few days I’m sure… and I’m sure he’ll be down to say hi to everyone next weekend at LOST… but in the meantime, the important part is… he’s safe and sound… and has completed the 63rd crossing of Lake Ontario in history… and became the just the 50th person to have ever swum across Lake O!
Lotsa love and rest from all the LOSTies!
