Akepati Bhaskar Reddy (28)

Open water swimming

07 Feb 2019







I was born and raised in India where I was a pool swimmer (swimming mainly 1500m freestyle events) during high school years. I was coached by renowned Indian swim coach, Gurcharanjit Singh Dhaliwal, who continues to be my mentor. Although never exposed to the world of open water swimming, I used to dream about swimming the English channel some day. After moving to Sweden in 2013 to pursue higher education, I developed a liking and later love for open water swimming. Over three years of training, under able guidance of coach Ulf Hausmann and unparalleled help from my friend and colleague, Partick Rohlmann, I have developed into a marathon swimmer with a few 6+ hour swims under my belt which include double participation at the 21.5 km Vidösternsimmet in Sweden. In September 2018, I successfully completed the Gibraltar strait crossing. Now, I aim to achieve my dream of swimming the English channel and even more. Currently I am training for my attempt at crossing the English channel in August 2019.
