Longest swim Ben Lecomte swam across the Atlantic Ocean in 1998 in support of cancer research, a tribute to his father who died of colon cancer. This Spring, Ben will swim across the Pacific Ocean from Tokyo to San Francisco in support of efforts to address the sustainability of our oceans for The Longest Swim. We, along with the UT Sports Dietetics Program, are excited to advise Ben on good nutrition for his epic swim.
