Open Water Swimming Career Highlights[edit]

Mediterranean International Swimming Relay Race[edit]

The Mediterranean International Swimming Relay Race was a 93 km Malta-to-Sicily open water swimming (4-person) competition between Australia, Italy, the Czech Republic, Slovenia and Hungary on 19-20 July 1996 that started from St. Julians Bay in Malta and finished at Marina di Modica in Sicily, Italy. The Australian team won in 19 hours 11 minutes and included Melissa Cunningham, Shelley Taylor-Smith, Joe Mitchell and Grant Robinson who swam on 20-minute legs under the leadership of Chris Guesdon.

1996 was the only year of a successful crossing. Both the 1995 Mediterranean International Swimming Relay Race and 1997 Mediterranean International Swimming Relay Race were held, but all the participating teams failed to finish.

The results included:

  • 1st: Australia (19:11)
  • 2nd: Italy (19:15)
  • 3rd: Czech Republic (20:42)
  • 4th: Slovenia (20:46)
