Lewis Pugh

Lewis Pugh

Ocean Advocate, Maritime Lawyer and Pioneer Swimmer

Lewis Pugh is an ocean advocate, a maritime lawyer, a pioneer swimmer, and one of the world's leading inspirational speakers. He is known for "Achieving the Impossible". He was the first person to complete a long distance swim in every ocean of the world. He was the first person to swim across the icy waters of the North Pole. And the first to swim across a glacial lake under the summit of Mt Everest. To date, he has pioneered more swims around famous landmarks that any other person in history. And he won’t stop there. He is continually redefining his own impossible — in the same way that organisations are forced to in an ever-changing world.
