Don Hargreaves [Heath 1953–1958] has drawn attention to the induction of Albert Coward [Heath 1951–1958] into the International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame.

After beginning open water swimming in the Lake District in the 1970s, Albert moved to Italy in 1978 where he established a number of firsts and became a regular open water swimmer in the Bay of Naples.
