Salvatore Cimmino's Global Swimming Tour
Swimming in the Seas of the Globe (A Nuoto nei Mari del Globo) is a series of swim by Salvatore Cimmino, a disabled Italian marathon swimmer. He attempted to become the first disabled athlete to successfully swim across the Cook Strait.

The Cook Strait crossing, organized by Philip Rush, is part of his Swimming in the Seas of the Globe (A Nuoto nei Mari del Globo) tour to promote disability awareness.

Cimmino had his right leg amputated at the age of 15 due to cancer and began swimming later in life for therapeutic reasons before turning it into a passion for raising disability awareness.
