Amazing 15 hour swim by Adeje couple 


An Adeje couple will be appearing in the Guinness Book of World Records following an amazing swimming achievement.

Cristina Ibáñez and Alberto Moreno have become the first man/woman pairing to complete the distance between La Gomera and Tenerife without wetsuits or flotation aids.

The swim took an incredible 15 hours and there was a very warm welcome for them when they arrived exhausted but well in La Caleta.

They were received by a delegation from Adeje council and local residents.

Upon their arrival, their vital signs were monitored and both were verified to be in good health.

Councillor for sports, Adolfo Alonso Ferrera, accompanied by councillor for social welfare and attention to diversity, Isabel Fernández González, presented two plates recognising their effort and confirmed the crossing will appear in the official record-breaking list.
