It is time to cross continents: preparing for Bosphorus

Босфор-2013_2-956x450

This year (2014) on the 20th of July, 1809 crazy but INSPIRING people will try cross the 6.5 km long Bosphorus strait.

Bosphorus is the world’s narrowest strait, which is separating Europe from Asia. Every year the National Olympic Committee of Turkey organizes this swimming race in Istanbul. The competition started in 1989 with 68 swimmers. Now, 26 years later there are thousands of participants from different parts of the world.
