Catalan swims from mainland to Ibiza

David Meca has just completed a 110 kilometre, 25 hour swim from Javea in the province of Alicante to San Antonio in Ibiza. The 25 kilometre open water world champion arrived with mild hypothermia, exhaustion, and a dislocated shoulder. The worst moments came during the 14 hour night, when he suffered jellyfish stings, an extreme drop in temperatures, and the spotlight on his support boat failed.
