Martin Strel is the Guinness world record holder in ultra marathon swimming. Dr. de Leonni Stanonik will provide medical support for Strel's Swim Around the World, and further develop telemedicine as part of the endeavor.

TUCSON, Ariz. - eTradeWire -- In 2007, Martin Strel set a new world record by swimming the entire Amazon River over a 66-day period beginning in Atalaya, Peru, to Belém, Brazil. The team physician, Dr. Mateja de Leonni Stanonik, was aboard the boat during the entire mission. The expedition provided a unique opportunity to introduce telemedicine to more than 17 communities in the Amazon basin. Filmmaker John Maringouin turned the story into an acclaimed documentary, Big River Man. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_River_Man

Martin Strel is now working on his most significant event yet, a "Swim Around the World" (WorldSwim). His plan is to visit 130 countries in 365 days and swim 110,000 kilometers of ship route.
