The prize

We have 3 pairs of Sarah Thomas’s favourite Kaiman EXO goggles to give away, each worth £19.99

Arguably one of the most gruelling feats of mental and physical endurance ever undertaken, last month Sarah Thomas became the first person to swim the English Channel four times non-stop, swimming from England to France and back twice in 54 hours – a distance of 84 miles. Following the Channel Swimming and Piloting Federation rules, Sarah only wore a swimming cap, ear plugs, goggles and costume for the entire swim. Her swimming goggles of choice were Kaiman EXO by Aqua Sphere and after her swim Sarah told us: “I only wear Kaiman EXO goggles. They are the only ones I’ve worn for open water swimming for years. They are comfortable, clear, durable, give me good range of sight and don’t fog. They are my favourite for sure.”

From Colorado USA, Sarah completed her first open-water event in 2007 and first swam across the Channel in 2012. In August 2017, she swam 104.6 miles in Lake Champlain on the US/Canada border but was diagnosed with breast cancer later that year. She dedicated her latest swim to “all the survivors out there”. During the 54 hours, Sarah was stung by jellyfish, battled extremely strong currents and, to fuel her, relied on energy drinks mixed with electrolytes and caffeine. She was only allowed a 10-minute break between crossings.

Regarded by many open water and pool swimmers as one of the best goggles on the market, the Kaiman EXO have curved lenses which provide 180-degree panoramic vision and Softeril gaskets for a comfortable seal against the skin. Latex free and hypoallergenic, the goggles are robust yet lightweight and are designed to be worn comfortably for long periods without pinching or leaking, as perfectly demonstrated by Sarah’s incredible long-distance swim.
