Rohans More of India has steadily climbed the Oceans Seven rankings. With his 10 hour 37 minute crossing of the Tsugaru Channel in Japan this week, he is now #8 on the list.

Like most other Tsugaru Channel swimmers, More started out just at sunrise in fairly calm waters. Then, as the sun rose and crossed the sky, the winds meet the Tsugaru Current and start to create havoc for the swimmers. But More hung tough, swam calmly despite the turbulence and finished strongly with this small support team.
