On Day 45, South African swimmer Martin Hobbs has breaststroked a total of 480 km of his 581 km north-to-south stage swim crossing of Lake Malawi on the borders between Malawi, Mozambique, and Tanzania.

His effort serves as a charity swim for the Smile Foundation. He estimated that the entire swim would take up to 60 days and he will be very close to hitting his mark.
