Alexandre Kirilos completed a successful 35 km Travessia do Leme ao Pontal in Brazil.

Kirilos started at 2 am and finished 10 hours 49 minutes later, escorted by Ary da Conceição along the coastal course. “He became the first swimmer from southern Brazil to complete this crossing, which is considered the largest and most beautiful crossing in Brazil,” reported Leme to Pontal Swimming Association Honorary Secretary Adherbal de Oliveira.

Yesterday on July 16th, it was a very special day for the Leme to Pontal Swimming Association.”
