Ultraman Hawaii Champ of 2004, Jonas Colting, is presently undertaking a momentous project to swim around Gotland, the largest single island in the Baltic sea.
The purpose of the project is to raise awareness of the importance of swimming from a health and safety perspective, to increase the acessibility of swimming halls by campainging for building new facilities and modernize old ones. The motto is 100 new swimming facilities in 10 years.
At UltraTri Sweden we share Jonas' passion for swimming and strongly endorse his campaign. The swim itself is really tough and he has encountered both strong winds and really cold patches of water (down to 7C)

Accumulated gain for this segment is 800 m of altitude, with the main challenges on the small curving road through the deep Kolmården forest to Nävekvarn, with many short sharp ascents and fast descents. ...

First 180k of the second day bike course covered today. This part of the course consist of three quite different segments; the first up from lake Vättern and through the deep forests of Hålaveden with many small and a few long climbs. The second segment is over the vast fields of Östergötland, wide flat roads gently rolling through the yellow rapeseed fields. Often the wind comes from the west and lends a helping touch - but if not, there is nowhere to hide. The third segment is on the northern side of lake Roxen, again with lots of little steep ascents and fast descents.
Total climb of todays 180k is 1010 m ... See MoreSee Less
