Martin Strel swimming with Sheikh from Saudi Arabia to Bahrain

Our founder Martin Strel was invited to a charity ocean swim with local Sheikh in Bahrain. On 14. March, 2014 Bahraini sportsman Sheikh Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa has completed a gruelling 35km charity swim from Saudi Arabia to Bahrain.

The challenge was hailed as an opportunity that brought together more than 70 swimmers and triathletes from diverse backgrounds to support this remarkable challenge with a great cause. All raised funds will be used to benefit cancer patients and their families.

World-renowned marathon swimmers and triathletes from Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Spain, USA, Slovenia, New Zealand and Australia took part alongside Sheikh Khalid and made a great event. Martin was proud to be invited to this special event amongst such elite group of guests and incredibly hospital locals in Bahrain. He hopes to return back in the future.
