Dan shows he’s more than Abel to do it

New Zealand swimmer and water advocate Dan Abel (pictured right) heads for the finish line in the 34km swim circumnavigation of Rarotonga yesterday.

The swim was held in a bid to raise funds and awareness for the Cook Islands Autism Society. Abel finished the mighty swim in just over 11 hours.

No stranger to marathon swims, Abel swam the English Channel earlier this year, conquered the Cook Strait in 6 hours and 15 mins in 2013, and won first place in the 2.5km at the 2017 World Masters Games. He is head coach of Fit and Abel and founder of Real Swim Adventures, enabling hundreds of people from beginners to championship swimmers, realise their swimming ambitions.
