Dani VidalSpain’s Paralympics Champion Dani Vidal has succeeded in his attempt to swim the Strait of Gibraltar, despite the fact that he has no left arm and only half of his right. He lost his limbs in a childhood accident when he was electrocuted.

It took him 6 hours 20 minutes to make the crossing on Wednesday, and he had to face side winds of 4.2 knots when two miles off the African coast.

After the historic crossing, he told the website that he felt very proud and satisfied to have completed the test which was a personal ambition. He said he would not deny that he arrived very tired, but he noted that his recovery had been quick.
