SwimTrek Bosphorus Medallists and Photo Diary 2019

By Olivia Weatherill , 26 July, 2019

2019 saw us take 262 guests from 34 countries to the iconic Bosphorus Strait and swim the 6.5 kilometres from Asia to Europe! This year saw some incredible times from SwimTrek competitors across the board, with several of #teamswimtrek placing in their age categories and earning themselves some medals in the process! Here’s the full list of all our medalists as well as a selection of some of our favourite photos from the event.
