John Kinsella, The Man With The Right Stuff

John Kinsella, The Man With The Right Stuff

A September 1979 issue of Sports Illustrated Magazine included a great story on John Kinsella, a former Sullivan Award winner and one of the greatest professional marathon swimmers in history, who really helped usher in the modern era of marathon swimming with his tremendous pool speed and endurance.

His story of his English Channel swim is here and proves the double Olympic medalist and International Marathon Swimming Hall of Famer truly had the right stuff.
