Matías Ola completed his second Oceans Seven crossing across the Catalina Channel in 10 hours 47 minutes, together with his team (coach Pablo Testa, pace swimmer Lucas Rivet, journalist Hernán Lirio, observers Steve Chase and Joel Virgel, and kayaker Barb Schumacher) that is documenting his journey across the world.

The founder of Swim Argentina took approximately 38,900 arm strokes as he averaged 62 strokes per minute across the Catalina Channel while being escorted by the Pacific Star across a smooth Pacific Ocean without waves or wind.
