He is truly amazing. Where that endurance and human will comes from is a strange phenomenon. Jelly fish and all.

Well any of them are more gutsy than me, despite me barely being able to swim.

I just wonder who is the greater swimmer, the American lady that just swam the English channel..... colder than the Caribbean, which is point to point if you do it there and back twice as she did 80 miles, but with current deviation was over a hundred miles, I think it was 110 roughly. Or this guy.... either one gets my cap raised.

Marathon runners are one thing but long distance swimmers that cross waters filled with who knows what are quite another, no matter the distance. Sharks, eels, jellyfish...no thank you. I'm glad to swim the length of a pool and stay afloat.
Marilyn Bell is a folk hero in these parts. She did some good cold water swims.
