Vidya Iyengar ByExpress News ServiceBENGALURU : Choppy waters, windy scenes, but a mind that was determined to complete a long-distance swim.
Viswanathan’s foray into the sport was at the age of 33, while his “fascination” with open water events started in his 40s when he first attempted a swim across the English Channel.
His first open water swim was an eight-person relay in 2015, followed by a four-person relay in 2016 and a two-person relay in 2018.
And the Triple Crown of Open Water Swimming seemed like a natural move.
I swam through some of the worst conditions and eventually completed the swim in 8hrs 7mins,” says Viswanathan, who is probably the oldest Indian to have reached this milestone.
