The end of Maarten van der Weijden's eleven-town swimming tour is broadcasted in the talk show M. This announces a spokesperson for the television program.
Van der Weijden started the swim trip on June 21 along eleven Frisian cities. The swimmer also made an attempt last year, but then had to stop the journey of 195 kilometers after 163 kilometers, because his body could no longer cope.
It seems that Van Der Weijden will make it to the finish this year. He is expected around 7.30 pm for the finish in Leeuwarden. The proceeds of the trip will go to cancer research.
The broadcast of M is hosted by, among others, eleven city tour winner Henk Angenent, presenter and former swimmer Erica Terpstra and marathon swimmer Edith van Dijk. The broadcast of M, presented by Margriet van der Linden, starts at 7.05 pm on NPO 1.
