Pablo Fernández Álvarez from Madrid, Spain participated in the Great Shark Swim, a planned 100 km charity swim organized by Madswimmer in the Agulhas Current along the KwaZulu Natal Coast in South Africa in December 2019, but the team stopped after 28.24 km and 9 hours 3 minutes due to stings by blue bottles.

But Fernández got some great video footage of his experiences with swimming among sharks.
