Solo swimmer Mike Gregory completes epic 60km swim from Geelong to Brighton


A determined solo swimmer dubbed “the tractor” has completed an epic 60km swim from Geelong to Brighton.

Mike Gregory and two other swimmers set off from the sea baths in Corio Bay on Friday afternoon, but only Mr Gregory made the distance, stepping ashore in Brighton yesterday afternoon after 22 hours and 35 minutes in the water.

His two companions, Paul Hoffman and Steve Klugman succumbed to injury and fatigue and withdrew from the swim, which raised money for quadriplegic Melbourne teen Will Murray.
