A gruelling swim over five consecutive days will see Bruce start his journey on Tai Pak beach in Discovery Bay on 29 October 2014 at 7.45am. He will cover approximately 15km each day, and will be accompanied not only by local paddlers and a support team but by his coach, four-year DB resident Olivier Baillet.
Founder of the coaching company beyond the line - endurance coaching & consulting, and also an experienced swimmer, Olivier has been providing Bruce with fitness-related support, including a swim-training plan, nutrition advice and technical guidance on open-water swimming.
