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
