SWEDISH SWIMMERS JOHANSSON AND HOLMQUIST TO ATTEMPT 30KM SWIM FOR CHARITY

Swedish swimmers Victor Johansson and Marcus Holmquist are going to attempt to swim 30 km in Sweden’s lake Vättern at the beginning of August in order to raise money for the World Food Program USA.

The lake is the second largest in Sweden, behind Lake Vänern and in the summer it reaches a temperature range of 12 and 17 degrees Celsius (54 to 63 degrees Fahrenheit).

Johannsson and Holmquist intend on taking the route across the lake from Visingsö to Jönköping, which has only been crossed by a swimmer once when Christer Junefelt did so on September 11, 1968.
