A Man-made Solution for Jellyfish Stings: Sean Conway’s Beard

Sean Conway appeared on the Russell Howard’s Good News program in 2015. The 32-year-old Conway swam from Land’s End in western Cornwall, England to John O’Groats in the far north of Scotland.

His wetsuited stage swim that took him 136 days to complete. Starting on June 30th 2013, he swam a total of 90 days with the remaining days stuck on land due to weather that prevented his safe swimming in the British sea.

He explained in the show that he grew his beard to stop the jellyfish stings.
