Dick Park

From Openwaterpedia

Dick Park is a South African open water swimmer and one of the co-founders of the Midmar Mile in South Africa together with Mike Arbuthnot and Brian Glover.

Midmar Mile[edit]

South Africa's Midmar Mile, the world's largest open water swim, was swum for the first time in 1973 when Park and his two friends Mike Arbuthnot and Brian Glover were unable to compete in the Buffalo Mile in East London because of petrol restrictions and decided to stage a race in KwaZulu-Natal.
