Brief: Zepp swims for Pailin

FRECHEN, Germany - Cambodian National Volleyball (Disabled) coach Christian Zepp covered an astonishing 66 kilometres over the weekend during a sponsored swim at the swimming pool of his hometown of Frechen, Germany. The 32-year-old German managed to raise US$1,100 for his chosen charity, the Pailin Frechen Lions Volleyball team, who compete in the Cellcard National Volleyball League (Disabled). Zepp said by email that he was "kind of devastated" Monday, but getting better Tuesday, noting that he had swum the equivalent of two English channel crossings, between Calais in France and Dover in England.
