Penny Palfrey. Charlie Gravett. Paul Ellercamp. These are individuals with a global following. When they speak, people listen.

Donal Buckley is along that same vein with a growing global following.

Buckley is the Lone Swimmer. But his exploits are followed around the world. His words, his voice, his perspective give swimmers around the world reason to pull for him, although most have never met him.

He inspires, he educates and he makes people smile and think with his profound prose. He takes difficult topics and makes them simple. He takes unknown issues and makes them engaging. He tackles the concept of marathon swimming with zest and vigor and a uniquely educational and entertaining point-of-view.

Buckley simply makes the global open water swimming world a better place. He is an English Channel solo swimmer and relay member who enjoys the simple joys and difficult challenges of cold-water marathon swims. His thoughts, his opinions, his ideas are all interesting, engaging, spot on and thoughtful.

His topics range from physical to psychological, from hypothermia to injuries, from training to its impact on daily life. He is introspective, intellectual, interesting and intriguing from his lone outpost in the southeast of Ireland.

A true treasure of our growing global community, the Lone Swimmer will be the guest on this week’s WOWSA Live.
