Mohammad Kobadi Continues In Across The Persian Gulf

PERSIAN GULF. Nine days into his stage swim in the Persian Gulf, 34-year-old Mohammad Hosein Bibi Kobadi forges on.

He swam 16.2K today from Qeshm Island in the Darkooh area. With the water temperature 21.6°C and humidity at 87%, today’s swim was completed in 6 knot winds that kicked up dust along with 2-foot waves. After 90 minutes, the water smoothed out as he was escorted by a medical team on his escort boat and a few military frigates along the way.

The journey across the Persian Gulf continues.
