WHY ICE SWIMMING?
IISA INTERVIEW IN THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS WITH DENIZ

MY SWIMMING JOURNEY

HIMALAYAS WORLD RECORD 2024

I'm honored to announce that I have been invited to participate in an incredible feat: ascending the Himalayas to locate and swim in the highest body of water on Earth. We will head to peak Putha Hiunchuli and swim between 6500m and 7000m above sea level. The expedition is anticipated to last approximately 16 to 18 days and will involve a team of swimmers, medical personnel, and cameramen, many of whom lack mountaineering experience, like me!!

Deniz Kayadelen English Channel Solo Swimmer

ENGLISH CHANNEL SOLO SWIM 2023

The English Channel is the body of water that separates England from France, approximately a 33 km swim, depending on the tide. Water temperatures in the Channel in the summer range between 15 to 18 degrees, well below what many pool and open water swimmers are used to. This is one of the most historically significant marathon swims. 

ENGLISH CHANNEL RELAY SWIM 2019

A relay swim shares the same conditions as a solo swim; the rules are the same (no wetsuit, no boat touching, etc.), and the distance is the same. The difference is that the relay is a team effort, in this case, we were 4 swimmers: Deniz Kayadelen, Raha Akhavan, Emre Deliveli, and Darren Watson; and we took turns to enter the water. 

MANHATTAN SWIM 2024

Another big goal for next year 2024.
The 20 Bridges Swim is a 28.5-mile / 45.9 km circumnavigation around the island of Manhattan via the East River, Harlem River, and Hudson River, under its 20 bridges. New York Open Water, which now hosts the event, conducts a series of four swims each summer composed of up to 15 participants. The feat is part of open-water swimming's triple crown, along with the English Channel and Catalina Channel.

NORTH CHANNEL 2019

North Channel Relay Swimmer from Ireland to Scottland, 2019 
The North Channel swim is approximately the same distance as the English Channel, but it has two major differences. The first is the sea temperature, which can be 3-5 degrees lower and the second is the hundreds of Lions Mane jellyfish which plague the Channel during the summer months and are for the most part unavoidable.
