Several Turkish dailies covered the intercontinental swimming competition which took place in Istanbul. More than thousand swimmers took part in the Intercontinental Bosphorus Race by swimming from Asian part of Istanbul to European side. The US Ambassador to Turkey, several politicians, artists and athletes swam 6.5 kilometres across the Bosphorus Strait.
