Credit Suisse has scooped its fifth Enduro Challenge title, arriving in Paris in the early hours of Sunday morning.

The City All Star team, competing for the first time, finished in second place, and Barclays Capital ranked third. Due to weather conditions, UBS and Deutsche Bank were unable to complete the swim element of the Challenge.

2nd All Stars 9:57 10:57 9:43 30:37

The Credit Suisse team also experienced their most successful fundraising year, raising over £100k for the bank's Charity of the Year 2010, Alzheimer's Society ( Since the Challenge began in 2005, nearly £1million has been raised for charity by the participating banks.

Credit Suisse Team Captain, Ben Jervis said: "I am so full of admiration for our team and the effort that went into achieving our fifth Enduro Challenge victory. The weather conditions made this a really tough year and all athletes suffered from sea sickness and exhaustion. The tide was rough and had turned on the last leg of the swim - a fast current could have swept the swimmers up the Channel towards Belgium so it was a real mental and physical effort to reach Cap Gris Nez. The thought of pulling out of the competition never entered our minds though - knowing that we had already smashed our fundraising target for Alzheimer's Society kept us going."
