British swimmer Adam Walker to tackle Cook Strait


See video on TVNZ

A British tourist is getting set to take the plunge and swim the Cook Strait tomorrow as part of an attempt to swim seven oceans around the world.

Adam Walker will make the notorious sixteen nautical mile stretch down the Cook Strait as part of the Ocean’s Seven challenge – which Mr Walker describes as the seven hardest ocean swims on the planet.

“Four people in the world have done it,” he says.

“No British person has.”
