On the 6th August 2014, Adam became the first British person to complete the Oceans7 - known as the toughest 7 ocean swims on the planet - when he swam across the North Channel in his Zoggs Predator Flex goggles, cap and Zoggs Hip Racer trunks in a time of 10 hours and 45 minutes.

This was the last of his 7 Ocean swims, a group of 7 long distance swims scattered across the world, that include the Cook Strait, the Molokai Channel, the English Channel, the Catalina Channel, the Tsugaru Strait and the Strait of Gibraltar.

Adam Walker is the first Briton to not only complete all seven swims, but to have successfully completed them all on the first attempt.

Of the appointment, David Annand, Zoggs UK Marketing and PR Manager said: “When selecting an ambassador for Open Water and Triathlon swimming Adam was an obvious candidate. We have known Adam since the beginning of his swims and have happily provided him with the necessary kit to complete all 7 Oceans. He has an inspiring story to tell and will be a tremendous role model to all of those taking part in Open Water swimming.”

Adam Walker added “It’s great to be working with Zoggs in an official capacity having been a big fan of their kit, especially the Zoggs Predator Flex range of swimming goggles which I’ve used for all 7 swims. Working with Zoggs can only help raise the profile of Open Water swimming and I look forward to collaborating with them at forthcoming events and product launches.”

Adam will be collaborating with Zoggs at the forthcoming 220 Triathlon Show at Sandown Park in Surrey (27th Feb to 1st March 2015) and at the Swim Expo at Event City in Manchester (20th to 22nd March 2015) where he will be demonstrating his unique swimming technique and coaching in an Endless Pool.

Adam will also play a major role in the launch of Zoggs latest swimming goggle that will be unveiled at both shows having tried and tested them during his 7th Ocean swim.
