Croatia’s record-breaking long-distance swimmer announces new challenges

Croatia’s long-distance swimmer Dina Levacic has recently announced her plans for this summer which include her second attempt to swim the length of  54 kilometres from the Adriatic island of Vis to her city of Split and the 30-kilometre Tsugaru Strait between the Japanese islands of Honshu and Hokkaido.

The 23-year-old Levacic, who is the first Croatian female swimmer to conquer the English Channel, is going to swim in July from the island of Vis to Split. Last July, she almost accomplished this feat but had to give up three kilometres before the finish line.
In August she is going to accomplish the Tsugaru swim, one of the Oceans Seven challenges.
