But no one has traversed from Europe to Africa via the Strait of Gibraltar doing butterfly. On Sunday September 8th, Héctor Ramírez Ballesteros escorted by his Nadandolibre teammates will launch himself from Spain doing butterfly until he reaches the shores of Morocco.
Coached by Jose Diaz of Nadandolibre, Héctor has intelligently built up to this attempt. He has trained properly and hardened himself as only butterfly-going open water swimmers can. What is impressive is his stroke turnover and ability to avoid swallowing water in rough water.
