Oceans Seven swimmer Anna-Carin Nordin completed an unprecedented 333 km Öland circumnavigation stage swim around the second largest Swedish island, located in the Baltic Sea.

The original plan of the International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame Honor Swimmer from Sweden was to swim 20 km per day in two stage swims per day, with escort kayaker Eva Samberg and her father Karl-Erik Nordin leading her ground support crew with Ina Karlsson, Sven-Olof Karlsson, and Lena Johansson.

The team started their stage swim on July 28th and finished on August 14th, a week longer than planned.
