Jeremy McClure Keeps On Setting And Achieving Goals In The Open Water

Jeremy McClure is a blind four-time Paralympic swimmer from Australia who continues to push (his) boundaries.

In 2015, he first completed a 19.7 km Rottnest Channel Swim from Cottesloe Beach to Rottnest Island in Western Australia, finishing in 7 hours 54 minutes. But a single crossing wasn’t enough the next year when he completed a two-way crossing in 14 hours 8 minutes. Then in 2017, he attempted a three-way crossing of the Rottnest Channel Swim with a team of 33 people in the Jeremy’s Blind Rottnest Triple Crossing.

Not limited to freestyle, McClure set the fastest backstroke crossing of the Rottnest Channel Swim in 7 hours 12 minutes in 2019.

This year on February 12th, he completed a 34.1 km swim from Dirk Hartog Island to Denham Beach in Shark Bay, Western Australia. Always seeking new goals and challenges…
