Neal Rayner, the high school swimming coach who attempted to swim the English Channel, joined the exclusive club of around 700 men and women who have swum the channel since 1875. It took about 14 hours, 30 miles, 54,000 strokes, and thousands of calories during his successful swim on August 10, 2005.

News Flash: Neal is the most recent addition to a short list of famous UCLA Alumni, which include the mayor of Los Angeles, a Nobel Peace Prize winner, and a hobbit.

Check out Neal's Journal, his account of the swim.

Neal was interviewed from London on a San Francisco sports radio show, KNBR Morning Show with Brian Murphy and Tim Liotta (10MB MP3). See some of Neal's other press clippings in Press.
