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.
