Romanian librarian to swim length of Danube

Avram Iancu

Avram Iancu set off on 20 June 2017 to swim 2,800km along the River Danube. The 41-year old librarian from Romania aims to become the first person to complete the swim without fins or a wetsuit. Starting in Donaueschingen, in Germany, Avram will swim through the Black Forest and cross 10 countries and four capital cities before finishing in the Black Sea, in Romania. He aims to complete the swim on 20 August, which will require him to cover about 50km each day.

About Outdoor Swimmer

Meeting our readers at events and swims over the summer, I have been struck by how you are never too old (or young) to have a swimming adventure. I hope that the inspiring stories between these covers inspire you to take on your own swimming challenges. In this issue we look at how you can improve your pacing by taking your training outside, long-term contributor Terry Laughlin writes powerfully about how he has kept swimming through his cancer treatment, we meet ultra swimming legend Jaimie Monahan and Becky Horsbrugh’s 80-year-old mum proves that it is never too late to take to the open water. Plus, a new wildlife column, nutrition, training, wild swimming and swimrun wetsuits and event reviews. It’s another bumper issue! Enjoy the magazine and happy swimming. Jonathan Cowie Editor
