Benedikt S. Lafleur, swimmer

Benedikt S. Lafleur will attempt to swim the English Channel July 7th- 14th 2007.

From www.ermasund.is/english.html :
Benedikt S. Lafleur is an Icelandic writer, artist and publisher. (See his publishing company, www.lafleurpublishing.com ). Several of the books Benedikt has edited have been published by various publishers and Lafleur Publications includes authors like the very respected Icelandic philosopher Gunnar Dal.

Benedikt has become famous for his sea swimming in Iceland. Last year he swam all the fjords in north west of Iceland, known as Vestfjords, with considerable media coverage. This year (2006) he swam all around Reykjavik (the capital of Iceland) unsmeared in the cold sea, with two stops on the way. Before this he organised large group walks for peoples betterment and health. The first one from Thingvellir to Reykjavik and the second one around Reykjavik. Done during the summers of 2003 and 2004

His most ambitious achievements is indisputably his attempt to swim across the English Channel - from Dover Shakespeare Beach to Cap Gris Nez. Only one person from Iceland has attempted this before, almost completing his attempt. His name is already a legend in the history of sea swimming in Iceland, Eyjolfur Jonsson. Unfortunately the strong currents on the Frech coast made him narrowly fail.

Benedikt S. Lafleur is determined to swim over the Channel next year. Benedikt continues to dedicate his swim to the battle against human trafficing and sexual abuse. Benedikt has collected money in order to built up a special fund, called "The Fund Of Innocense" which is meant to deal with these problems through other associations in Iceland and in Britain. In this respect, Benedikt, as well as all the main humanitarian associations in Iceland, have encouraged the Icelandic Goverment to validate the agreement of the European council, concerning, among other things, human trafficking, which it has signed like so many other European countries, but still needs to be adapted to the Icelandic laws to in Parlement in order to be put in action.
