Nick Adams Joins The Triple Break

Nick Adams Joins The Triple Break

Ned Denison’s concept of the Triple Crown of Prison Island Swims (or Triple Break) has a new member: Nick Adams. Adams completed a series of swims from former isolated prison islands where convicts have given way to open water swimmers.

Denison’s list of the swimmers who have currently completed the Triple Crown of Prison Island Swims (or Triple Break for completing the Robben Island + Alcatraz Island + Spike Island swims) now includes 11 swimmers.

Denison also coined the phrase, the Quatro Crown of Prison Island Swims (or Quatro Break for completing Robben Island + Alcatraz Island + Spike Island + Rottnest Island swims).
