For Darien High School junior Davis Tuzinkiewicz who recently completed the English Channel swim with a relay team, the feat is more about the passion for swimming than bragging about it.
Davis spoke about what this swim meant to him. “I hoped to get out of this experience a sense that I accomplished something great and unique along with my team. After training for two summers, it is a great payoff to finally reach France. I also learned that the open water distance swimming community is small, but it is very special. The people who swim are all very passionate about swimming not to boast, but just to enjoy the sport.”
