Lewis to be train­ing base for Antarc­tic swim

Evening Times - - NEWS -

AN en­durance swim­mer is to take to the seas around the Outer He­brides in prepa­ra­tion for an Antarc­tic chal­lenge.

Lewis Pugh is to swim a kilo­me­tre across a lake on the Antarc­tic ice sheet to raise aware­ness of the cli­mate cri­sis at the poles.

In the run up to this he has put out an ad­vert for peo­ple to train with him off the Isle of Lewis from later this month.

To train for the one kilo­me­tre swim across a ‘su­per­glacial lake’, Mr Pugh, who has swum in Antarc­tica be­fore, will train in moun­tain lochs and the sea around the Isle of Lewis.
