Ross Edgley - The Great British Swim
Ross Edgley, the athlete, adventurer, and author,...
Ross Edgley is a wild man. An athlete, adventurer, and author who loves crazy stunts, Ross is humble, enthusiastic and a joy to be around. His decade-long career in sport, fitness, and nutrition has taken him through some crazy feats of strength. Ross is famous for swimming around the entirety of Great Britain and has recently published a book called “The World’s Fittest Book”.
From running a marathon whilst pulling a 1.4-ton car, swimming 100km between two Caribbean islands while towing a tree, and climbing the height of Everest on a rope, Ross Edgley pushes the limits of endurance and strength.
The Great British Swim
In 2018 Ross spent 5 months at sea, becoming the first person to swim around the island of Great Britain.
Battling stinging jellyfish, whirlpools, storms, rhino neck, and sea ulcers, Ross Edgley, through tremendous determination, grit and strength, somehow managed to complete what became known as The Great British Swim. Swimming 12 hours a day, it took him 157 days to swim the 1,791 miles (nearly 3,000 kilometers), without touching land the entire time.
Ross’ book, “The World’s Fittest Book” chronicles some of the insane training experiences he’s had with some of the world’s best athletes and is packed with science-backed advice on how to train for anything and everything, anywhere and everywhere.
In short, Ross is an absolute beast! He’s also a great friend of mine and a true inspiration.
