Man with no limbs swims Bering Strait

I’m not sure what there is to say, except amazing. What an incredible feat.

Truly Inspiring

I’m lucky to have all four of my limbs. Yet I still consider the 10.5 miles of Windermere to be a fairly big challenge. This guy doesn’t have any of his limbs left (having lost them because he was electrocuted and fused to a metal ladder) and yet he has just swam 12 miles between Papua New Guinea and Indonesia. And he wants to do more, much more.

“A Frenchman who lost his limbs in an accident has completed the first part of his challenge to swim between five continents.”
