Irish swimmer Ned Denison swam from the coastal town of Alibaug in adjoining Raigad district to the Gateway of India here Wednesday just for "fun" as he completed the 36-km sea distance in 7 hours and 51 minutes.
Denison covered the distance in 7 hours and 51 minutes, he said.
"I booked my ticket (to India) and came here but I still don't know why I was doing it. I did it (undertook the swim) for fun," Denison told PTI from Jaipur, a day after he achieved the feat.
