Four Time Non-Stop Channel Swimmer Sarah Thomas Chooses Kaiman EXO Goggles

Arguably one of the most gruelling feats of mental and physical endurance ever undertaken, last week Sarah Thomas became the first person to swim the English Channel four times non-stop, swimming from England to France and back twice in 54 hours.  Due to strong tides, the 80 mile swim became 130 miles and, abiding by the Channel Swimming and Piloting Federation rules, Sarah only wore a swimming cap, ear plugs, goggles and costume for the entire swim.  Her swimming goggles of choice were Kaiman EXO by Aqua Sphere and after her swim Sarah told us “I only wear Kaiman EXO goggles.  They are the only ones I’ve worn for open water swimming for years!  They are comfortable, clear, durable, give me good range of sight and don’t fog.  They are my favourite for sure.”

From Colorado USA, Sarah completed her first open-water event in 2007 and first swam across the Channel in 2012. In August 2017, she swam 104.6 miles in Lake Champlain on the US/Canada border but was diagnosed with breast cancer later that year.  She dedicated her latest swim to ‘all the survivors out there.’  During the 54 hours, Sarah was stung by jellyfish, battled extremely strong currents and, to fuel her, relied on energy drinks mixed with electrolytes and caffeine and only had a 10 minute break between crossings.

Regarded by many open water and pool swimmers as one of the best goggles on the market, the Kaiman EXO has curved lenses which provide 180 degree panoramic vision and Softeril gaskets for a really comfortable seal against the skin.  Latex free and hypoallergenic, the goggles are robust yet

lightweight and are designed to be worn comfortably for long periods without pinching or leaking, as perfectly demonstrated by Sarah’s incredible long distance swim.  For more information please check out http://www.aquasphereswim.com.  Interestingly, Aqua Sphere is the sister brand to the fast growing MP Michael Phelps swimming brand.
