Name: Sylvain (Sylle) Estadieu (Estadiö)

Swimmer specialised in relatively cold water and relatively long distances. Did a solo crossing of the English Channel in September 2009 and a Butterfly crossing of the English Channel in September 2013.
Other notable swims:
- Lake Zurich 2009 (26,4km)
- Loug Sheelin 2010 (15km)
- Vidösternsimmet 2014 (21,5km)
I am neither fast nor slow, I can swim in unreasonably cold water for a reasonable amount of time, I love front crawl, adore butterfly, enjoy breaststroke and despise backstroke, I watch swimming, read about swimming, talk about swimming …
I am always up for a challenge, so DO NO HESITATE to submit any crazy / silly swimming idea that you might have.
