One of the unique presentations at the 2012 Global Open Water Swimming Conference will be an interview with Ben Lecomte during his Longest Swim from Japan to California.

In his nearly inconceivable stage swim from Tokyo to San Francisco, Lecomte will be swimming day by day as he makes his way across the largest body of water in the world. Armed with technology that will allow him to transmit what he sees and says to the outside world from thousands of miles away, Lecomte will take some time on September 22nd to update the audience at the Global Open Water Swimming Conference in Long Beach, California on his swim, his conditions and what he sees out where no man or woman has ever swum before.

I am looking forward at the opportunity to connect live with the open water swimming audience from the middle of the Pacific Ocean during the 2012 Global Water Swimming Conference. Doug Stanley is developing the telepresence with 2 HD channels capability.”

Stanley is a two-time Emmy Award winner who has produced The Deadliest Catch, Lobstermen: Jeopardy at Sea, America’s Toughest Jobs (2008) and Last American Cowboy. With him at the helm of transmitting a live feed from the middle of the Pacific, Lecomte and the audience are in great hands.

The Longest Swim journey is a symbol of motivation, inspiration and endurance when facing struggles in our lives. Overcoming obstacles against impossible odds, Ben Lecomte will attempt to swim across the Pacific Ocean, establishing a new world record in long distance swimming in the hopes of inspiring others to never give up and follow their dreams.

His swim and his speech will be impressive, unique and simply off the deep end.
