Where Are They Now? Lyndon Dunsbee

Former English Channel world record holder Lyndon Dunsbee was inducted as an Honour Swimmer in the International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame in 1988.

His 1984 France-to-England crossing set a record (8 hours 34 minutes) that was only surpassed 3 times since (Eric Johnson with a 8:20 crossing in 1985, Philip Rush with a 8:15 crossing in 1987 and Richard Davey in 8:05 in 1988). After his induction in 1988, he got the itch again and completed a England-to-France crossing in 1989.

Dunsbee is currently the Pool Manager of the Folkestone Sports Centre in Folkestone, and coaches triathletes.
