Slowly but surely, Neil Agius is swimming further and further.
In 2018, he completed a 70 km circumnavigation swim around Malta in 21 hours 52 minutes.
Now, he completed a Century Swim. Agius completed a 100 km Sicily to Malta swim in 28 hours 7 minutes. The 34-year-old departed from Sicily from Punta Braccetto in the province of Ragusa on June 25th at 5:15 am and arrived at St Julian’s Water Polo & Aquatic Club in Malta on June 26th at 9:24 am. His swim was part of the Wave of Change movement which raises awareness about marine pollution and threats to marine habitats.
Agius swam a bit faster than famed Maltese Olympian Nicky Farrugia who swam from Sicily to Gozo in 1985 in 30 hours 17 minutes.
