British man swims under Antarctic ice sheet

Jan 25, 2020 13:05 IST

A British man, Lewis Pugh has become the first person in the world to swim under the Antarctic ice sheet. He wore only his swimming trunks, cap and goggles! The 50-year-old, who is also a climate change activist, spent around 8 minutes in the freezing water to demonstrate the 'very rapid changes' happening as a result of climate change. Later this week, Pugh will be undertaking a 20-minute swim.
