6 Japanese swimmers in 150km relay swim to Taiwan

TAIPEI (AFP) - Six Japanese swimmers have started a 150km relay swim to Taiwan from a Japanese islet to express gratitude for Taiwan's help after the tsunami, officials said on Sunday. The swimmers started their 48-hour relay swim early on Saturday morning from Yonakuni 110km east of Taiwan, according to the state Central News Agency. But the swimmers will have to make a detour because of a strong Pacific Ocean current, extending their planned swim to around 150km, the organisers said in a statement to local media. The group is scheduled to arrive in Suao, a port in north-eastern Ilan county, on Monday morning to a grand welcoming ceremony, county government officials said.
