Madhya Pradesh para swimmer Satendra Singh Lohia has become the first Asian swimmer to cross the Catalina Channel of America. Satendra holds the Asian record of crossing both the English and Catalina channels.


  • Stretching between Santa Catalina Island and Los Angeles in California, the Catalina Channel is 21 miles long.

  • It's comparable to the English Channel in terms of distance and water conditions, although it’s a little warmer.
