I’m not too bad at swimming. I can do a few lengths in my pyjamas, and can get a rubber brick from the bottom of the pool. But this guy has outdone me. Slightly.
Ron Konrad, who played for the Miami Dolphins, might be a big lad, but he can certainly carry himself across water.
While he was out on a boat, fishing, he fell into the water and his boat drifted away. He was nine miles away from the South Florida coast. But it wasn’t a problem… he just swam back to shore.
It took him 12 hours, and he was treated for hypothermea. But he got a lot further than I would. About 8 and a half miles further.
