The Real Champion
Yes, I am alive and kickin. I made around the Burj in 15:11 minutes, while my brother made it in 17:30 minutes and my friend in 26:55 minutes. Looking back at 1.1 kilometre event, I think we did a good job for bunch of couch potatoes wanna be athletes.
The fasts swimmer did in approximately 8 and half minutes which means he was doing less than 50 sec, per 100 meter. That's absolutely awesome. But the real winner is the man pictured next to the person dressed in the 'Juha' costume, above. He actually pulled a man dressed in a cartoon character, in a tube, around Bur Al Arab and came in the top 25 swimmer in approximately 12 minutes, now that is a real fit athlete.
