A Friend In Need Is A Friend In Deed

A Friend In Need Is A Friend In Deed

What we love about the King and Queen of the Sea (Rei e Rainha do Mar) series in how many disabled athletes participate and how readily the volunteers and staff come to their aid at the start and up along the beach at the finish.

But set these athletes off in the water and they are cruising away with the same joy and intensity as the other athletes.

This year’s event, directed by Pedro Rego Monteiro and produced by Effect Sport, will be something special.

The King and Queen of the Sea in December will include a made-for-television professional marathon swim duo race – with athletes from Asia, Africa, Europe, Oceania and the Americas competing head-to-head that will attract the world’s absolute best. Watch for who will participate here soon.
