Tearsheets: Oceans Seven in NY Times

A couple of days ago I had the pleasure to meet Antonio Arguelles, a 58 year old Mexican swimmer, as he set out to cross the North Channel from Donaghadee in Northern Ireland to Scotland.

Antonio managed to cross the channel in 13 hours and 32 minutes, becoming the first Latin American, the seventh person ever and the oldest to complete the Oceans Seven, the open water swimming’s answer to climbing the Seven Summits of mountaineering.

Below, the screengrab of one of the photographs shot on assignment for The New York Times. The full story can be seen here: 'In a swimmer's two-year quest, a final 21-mile challenge'
