SIX Japanese men completed a treacherous 120-kilometre swim relay to Taiwan to thank the island for its help after Japans deadly tsunami. The six young men took the plunge on Saturday despite the threat of shark attacks and strong Pacific Ocean currents, for the relay swim from Yonakuni, a Japanese islet 110 kilometres east of Taiwan. The group were flanked by several Taiwanese coastguard vessels as they swam near Suao, a major fishing port in northeastern Ilan county, and hundreds of people waved the national flags of Taiwan and Japan as they arrived. We did it We did it Thank you Taiwan group leader Suzuki Kazuya shouted passionately as the swimmers hugged each other when they reached a beach near Suao after the 72-mile swim. BP
