Adam Walker & Ocean's Seven

Pain only lasts for a day, success lasts for a lifetime!

What is 'Ocean's Seven?'

Ocean's Seven is a group of 7 long distance swims scattered across the globe: Irish Channel, the Cook Strait, the Molokai Channel, the English Channel, the Catalina Channel, the Tsugaru Strait and the Strait of Gibraltar. Adam Walker is the first Briton to not only to complete all seven swims, but to have successfully completed them on the first attempt. There are 4 other people in the world that have completed this ultimate challenge of endurance and Adam is proud to be amongst them.

Man or Machine?

Adam Walker or 'Mad Adam' as nicknamed, by his Water Polo team made the big decision to undertake Oceans Seven spontaneously while he was on a plane to Australia. He watched a movie, ‘On A Clear Day’, which is about a character named Frank, who has lost his job and is determined to salvage self-esteem, as well as tackle personal demons, by swimming the English Channel.

"You can get any dream you want, but you've got to be dedicated and you've got to want it!"
