Press release - Erica From America: Swimming from Europe to Africa

Erica from America: Swimming from Europe to Africa, tells the story of Erica, who, as a child grew up wanting to do everything, and later decided to swim the Strait of Gibraltar. Her friends thought she was crazy but Erica was determined (even if a little nervous) and decided she was going to swim from Europe to Africa no matter what. But when she got to Spain, her plans are interrupted by the winds and another group of swimmers, who befriend her and ask her to swim with them. Ultimately, she and the other swimmers were all set to swim and they reached their goal to swim from Europe to Africa but not without a lot of activity during the swim!

The Egyptian and Italian won each on one occasion and won the affection of the Santa Fe.

If we must talk about swimmers who passed through Santa Fe and left their own stamp not forget two names: Abdellatief Abouheif and Giulio Travaglio. The first, an Egyptian who swam for the first time in The Coronda in 1964 and took the win, the second, an Italian who won the tragic issue of `66 when after an accident killed journalist Jaime Victor Tepper. Both agree to have won an edition of the "most beautiful in the world" and Santa Fe have captivated audiences in a special way.
