已经是身为爷爷的罗杰·艾索普成功地成为了横渡英吉利海峡的人中最老的一位。

Just after 2.15 am the retired breast cancer surgeon, who worked in Southampton, reached Cap Gris, in France, after a 18-hour swim that started in Dover at 8 am yesterday morning.

昨天早晨8点钟从多佛出发,经由18个小时的酣战,这位在南安普顿工作的,已经退休了的乳腺癌外科医生,在今早2点15分刚过,顺遂抵达了法国的“白鼻角”。

艾索普今年70岁4个月,是三个孩子的爷爷,这位老爷爷势不成挡,成功击败了之前的吉尼斯世界记实连结者,也就是70岁零4天的(美国退休机长)乔治·布伦斯塔德。

It comes exactly five years after he became the oldest Briton to swim the Channel, which although is around 23 miles, due to tides, Roger was forced to swim almost double that.

五年前他成为了横渡英吉利海峡最老的英国人。尽管英吉利海峡大约有23英里,可是此次横渡因为潮汐的原因,罗杰被迫多游了一倍的旅程。

His inspiration this time to plunge into the icy water is to fund pioneering research at the University of Southampton that could lead to the development of a blood test to detectcancer at the earliest possible stage.

此次让他扎进冰凉海水的动力是为南安普顿大学的癌症开创研究筹集资金,以敦促血液测试的研究从而在癌症的最早期阶段将其发现。
