Petar Stoychev of Bulgaria, an Honour Swimmer in the International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame and the former Minister of Sport in Bulgaria, talks about his most famous swim: his record-breaking crossing of the English Channel.

On the shores of the Caribbean Sea, Stoychev talks about how he was not the only person out in the English Channel on that day, a race for the ages between him and rival Yuri Kudinov.
