Unbelievably proud of our very own TPW LEGEND @rossedgley and his herculean effort in #strongmanswim yesterday he swam an INCREDIBLE 50KM in his record breaking swim from St.Lucia to Martinique. Add in a 100lbs tree to try make it just a little more difficult and the challenge was hard enough as it was. After swimming for 19 HOURS, yes that’s right, 19 hours! And suffering countless Jelly Fish stings (Ross didn’t tell anyone about these in fear they would pull him out the water) huge waves and ingesting enough salt water to boil a dozen eggs Ross was already through 35km of the 40km swim.
Just 3 miles from the Beaches of Martinique, Mother Nature wielded her power and turned the currents around. Although the locals told him it would be impossible, Ross tried an incredible 10 times to battle through the currents and wield himself and his tree through the forces of nature. Unfortunately, this time, Mother Nature won, but be warned Mother Nature. Ross will be back to try again.
Our TPW Hero has done everyone proud, swam an extra 10km more than he ever expected, battled and smashed through almost every obstacle that was put in front of him and ultimately come up just short. Rest up buddy, you’re an inspiration to us all and continue to show us what is possible with the human body! Enjoy your break and come back stronger once more!
