Maarten van der Weijden known for his unbelievable long distance swimming, just accomplished a mind blowing achievement.
Last year the first edition took place but Maarten did not manage to successfully complete the 11 city journey. He fell ill during his second swimming day after laying 55 hours in the water. This year however, he triumphed.
Maarten van der Weijden started the second edition of the Eleven Cities Swimming Tour in Leeuwarden on Friday. The tour was 195 kilometers long and he finished at 7:30 PM on Monday (Dutch time).

This sensational achievement was all done to raise money for the cancer foundation.
At only 19 years old Maarten was diagnosed with cancer
