Alex McCallum

From Openwaterpedia

Alex McCallum (born 24 June 1994 in the Cayman Islands) is a pool and open water swimmer of the Stingray Swim Club in the Cayman Islands.

Born and brought up in the Cayman Islands, one of the greatest open water swimming destinations in the world, Alex, like many Cayman swimmers, has gained a significant amount of open water swimming experience over more than a decade. In August 2012 he represented Cayman at the inaugural FINA World Open Water Junior Championships in Niagara, Canada. Cayman hopes to host events of this stature in their crystal blue waters soon.

Alex is at Loughborough University in September 2013 to study and be part of the renowned Loughborough Swimming Squad.

He won the November 2012 Butterfield 800m Sea Swim in a photo finish and the 2012 Pirates Week 5K Swim over Olympic 10km Marathon Swim gold medalist Ous Mellouli and world champion Ashley Twichell.

In January 2013, Olympians Conor Dwyer, Liam Tancock and Caitlin McClatchey visited Cayman. Conor Dwyer, forewarned by Ous Mellouli, took no chances and blasted out to a big lead to prevent another shock win by Alex, who came ahead of Caitlin McClatchey, who promised to return in 2014 to seek revenge.
