June 3rd, today, is a day when both champions from the 1994 FINA World Championships 25 km swim were born. Melissa Cunningham of Australia was born in 1974 and Greg Streppel of Canada was born in 1968.

Both were passionate and personable; intense and intelligent. They both worked long hours to develop stamina and speed to rise to the top of their profession.

The community celebrates the special day for these two International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame Honour Swimmers.
