303Radio: Alon Mandel on his Upcoming Challenge to Swim Cook Straight

Alon Mandel is attempting to swim something that less 100 humans have ever done. He is going to swim between the North and South islands of New Zealand forging the heavy currents of the Cook Straight. It’s about 14 miles of treacherous waters but the Olympic Swimmer from Israel has swam the Ocean’s Seven Strait-of-Gibraltar in September 2015, swimming from Spain to Morocco. With All-American awards, as a University of Michigan swimmer and teammate of Michael Phelps, Alon has many moments to draw upon for that fortitude and strength to attempt this swim.

Hear the details with 303Radio recorded at the Denver Athletic Club after a masters swim session with Bill Plock. Alon is raising money for Parkinson’s Disease and you can learn more HERE

SwimLabs & CYCLEBAR – Ripple to Waves Fundraiser

Lone Tree

 

Join us in our efforts to raise money for Ripples to Waves! 

We always believe that swimming is not only a life skill that is fundamental to a child’s development but also a source of pride, accomplishment and lasting memories in a child’s life. We also believe that this experience should be available to everyone regardless of their financial circumstances. That is why we have teamed up with Olympic Champion Missy Franklin and USA Swimming Foundation to form the Ripples To Waves swim lesson program. Ripples to Waves makes swim lessons available to sponsored families, regardless of their ability to pay. They will never see a bill for the cost of their lessons at our swim schools.

 

For $25 you can reserve your spot in class which includes the shoes, towel and a water bottle! Join us for an awesome sweat session and make a difference!
