Endurance swimmer Lewis Pugh is preparing for his toughest challenge yet… in Antarctica. Pugh will soon swim a kilometre across a ‘supraglacial’ lake in the Antarctic.
The endurance swimmer, who also lives in Cape Town part-time, has trained off the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides.
He hopes to create a network of protected marine sanctuaries in east Antarctica. On his blog Pugh says after the swim, he will travel to Moscow to meet Russia’s leaders.
Under international law, 25 nations plus the EU need to agree on any measures to protect the continent. Twenty-three nations and the EU agree. Just Russia and China still need to be persuaded.
