Marcos Diaz swims cross the Strait of Magellan
Santo Domingo.- Dominican open water swimmer Marcos Diaz managed to cross the Strait of Magellan, in one hour, two minutes and 34 seconds, announced Friday Tuto Guerrero, his trainer and audio-visual producer.
With his new feat defying cold water temperatures and the strong Antarctic current, Diaz becomes the first man to swim across both ends of the world; the Bering and Magellan straits.
Diaz and his team had been in Punta Arenas, Chile for more than 10 days, waiting for the strong winds to quell, allowing the athlete to swim across the inhabited world’s southernmost point.
