    Former Olympic Champion open water swimming Maarten van der Weijden last year tried to swim the 200K Elfsteden (Eleven cities)track known as the most famous skatingtrack.

    He raised funds (over € 3.500.000,--) for cancerresearch. He stranded at 163 K and had to quit.

    And, beating leukemia is no small achievement. Depending on the kind -- and there are four basic kinds of leukemia -- it can respond well to treatment and be slow in progressing, or it can be aggressive and kill in a short amount of time.

    I had two great-grand uncles, brothers, who had it at a time when there was little anyone could do for it.

    It affects other bodily functions, as well. It can cause the lungs to bleed internally and result in drowning. What starts out as a simple cold can turn deadly. Bad stuff, that leuko!

    It is a huge achievement, even bigger than his Olympic Race in Beijing.



    In the background you can hear Pieter van den Hoogenband (Another Olympic champ) cheer and shout for his friend.
