Who was the first person to swim across the pacific?
No one has swam across the Pacific Ocean..yet. Ben Lecomte, long
distance swimmer from Texas will be however, in 2012. From Japan to
San Francisco, CA. He will be trying for a world record but his
main mission is raising funds for cancer research and to support
those that have battled cancer, who have lost someone to cancer, or
who are currently battling the disease as well as battling anything
in life. He states it will take him approximately 6 month to
accomplish this. He lost his father in 1991 to cancer so that is
the motivation that drives Ben and he has already swam across the
Atlantic Ocean in 1998, from Cape Cod, USA to France.
