Earlier this year Lewis Pugh headed to the Antarctic, to undertake five swims in sub-zero temperatures at strategic points to support the call for the world's biggest, and arguably most critical, Marine Protected Areas, in the Ross Sea and its neighbouring waters. In doing so he broke his own the record (twice) for the most southerly swim ever undertaken – all in nothing more than a swimming costume. The image was taken during his fourth swim. The water was -1.7 degrees Celsius.
