Visper Schwimmsporttag

"Swimming is healthy and keeps you fit, all join in”

How far can Visp swim?

On 28 August 2014, the first Visp Swimming Day was held. Everyone was welcome to participate and to extend the total distance. The Visp primary and secondary schools were well-represented. The pupils showed a great deal of dedication and had a lot of fun. “The aim of inviting pupils was to encourage their interest in swimming and to promote swimming within school sports”, Brigitte Stoffel (RRO) explained. The Visp locals, both groups of pupils and our loyal swimmers together covered a total distance of 138 kilometres and 650 metres. This corresponds to the distance from the Visp swimming pool to the Olympic Museum in Lausanne. A further Visp Swimming Day is already planned for 2019. The declared goal is then to swim from Lausanne back to Visp.
