OTS team of 5 swam across the Bosphorus strait in Turkey from Asia to Europe under a blazing sun, accompanied by 2000 other. 6.5km flashed by in just over an hour.
Speedy waterpolo players Mik, Grace and Dan led the pack, with Mik narrowly missing 3rd place by a minute reaching Europe in 1:01, followed by Grace and Dan both at 1:03. Too short a distance to gain any advantage, Kona World Champ qualifier, Ironman triathlete Liv touched in at 1:07 and Emily at 1:13.
The trip was punctuated by rooftop sunset gazing, massive mezze platter and hanging on for dear lives in Turkish taxis.
