Oly’s Ithaca challenge is on

Dorset’s ‘human fish’ Oly Rush is preparing to take on his next challenge – swimming around the Greek Island of Ithaca. And it has been made possible by recruitment company Green Folk Ltd, based in Hook, Hampshire, which has funded Oly during his training and is covering his costs.

Plastic plesiosaur coming to Bournemouth

World record-holding super swimmer Oly Rush is to attempt another first – towing a huge dinosaur in the water between Bournemouth’s two piers. The ‘human fish’ had a model plesiosaur made from 600 plastic bottles and other rubbish collected from beaches.

Recruiters Green Folk are living up to their name by sponsoring eco-hero Oly Rush on his next anti-plastic pollution swim. The firm, headquartered in Hook, Hampshire, and with an office in the Cotswolds, is enabling Oly to train for his 24-hour swim around the Greek Island of Ithaca.

Human fish completes world first

Human fish Oly Rush has become the first person in history to swim around the island of Grand Cayman in the Caribbean. The plasterer, 37, from Upton near Poole in Dorset, completed the 95.5km (almost 60 mile) swim in 36 hours and 59 minutes.
