Adrian O’Connor of Cloghane, Co Kerry in Ireland is taking to the water with a deep passion.
His inspirational story was posted here in an earlier Daily News of Open Water Swimming article.
Coach Nuala Moore reported that he did 50 lengths in a 50m pool today in a time of 1 hour 50 minutes. Considering his long road back from a devastating head injury, this landmark swim is significant.
“His return to active has been a supreme success,” reports Moore. “During his rehabilitation, he has had to relearn the co-ordination of swimming. He knew how to swim before his injury, but he was not a life-long competitive swimmer.”
