PLYMOUTH — Mallory (Cook) Mead will again be swimming nationally.
The “Dialogue Across the Seas” project 2009, the brain child of Channel Swimmer Nejib Belhedi, supported by CSA President Michael Read follows on from the first project in 2007. It is a joint venture between the Channel Swimming Association Ltd. and the Tunisian authorities and most importantly enjoys the encouragement of His Excellency, The President of the Republic of Tunisia, Zine El Abidine Ben Ali.
Great challenges are nothing new to English Channel swimmers, but opportunities to put things back into sport, to encourage people to push themselves to new challenges and new limits, to promote healthy activity, to encourage young people to be more active, to demonstrate that sport can be fun, to make and further new friendships with people from other nations, these are challenges too good to resist.
