Aussie John van Wisse has crossed the finish line in Paris this morning, completing one of the world's greatest endurance races, the Arch To Arc in World Record time.
John ran 140 kmís from London to Dover, swam the English Channel, then cycled a further 290 kmís but he told Triple Mís The Hot Breakfast he got lost during the run and with the rough conditions the swim was no picnic either.

An 87 mile run, a 180 mile bike ride and swimming the Channel? He lost his marbles long before he lost his breakfast but, "Jolly well done, mate."
