Ross Edgley, the British creator of Strongman Swimming and popular fitness expert, completed his first Strongman Swim at the Great Swim in Windermere in 3 hours 55 minutes.

His particular form of open water swimming requires that the former water polo player swims as he pulls a heavy, 100 lb. log through the water harnessed to his waist.

After his first 10 km Strongman Swim, he is headed this weekend to do a 15 km swim in Newham, London and then next week to Lympstone, England where he will attempt a 16.64 km Royal Marine 1664 Charity Challenge on July 4th.

His fourth Strongman Swim will be performed in Loch Lomond, Scotland on August 26th – which is all a lead-up to his last and toughest 40 km Strongman Swim from Martinique to St Lucia in the Caribbean Sea on November 12th.
