An amputee with no arms or legs has made history by swimming across four intercontinental channels after losing all four limbs when he was severely electrocuted.
French athlete Philippe Croizon finished the final stage of his marathon swim last Friday, swimming the two mile channel in arctic waters between Alaska and Russia in extreme conditions.
The 44-year-old, who had never swum before, is only the second person to swim the Bering Strait.
Please tell me that no one will read the article and say, "Yeah, but he did it with help." Yeah, BECAUSE HE HAS NO ARMS AND NO LEGS. This man has swum all four intercontinental channels, the last in freezing water. What did YOU do, mow the lawn?
Phillippe, je t'aime!
