knows - Brit Ross Edgley (33) is the first man to swim around Britain's entire mainland. Edgley left for his monster tour of nearly 3200 kilometers in June and arrived in Kent on Sunday. The violent swam twelve hours a day in which he traveled 30 to 50 kilometers. Edgley had to eat between 10,000 and 15,000 calories every day.
Three hundred swimmers swam the last few kilometers with him on their way to the finish.
It is not the first extreme challenge of the Briton. Earlier, he ran a marathon while pulling a Mini and swam 100 kilometers with a tree trunk behind him.
The tour was meant to draw attention to his The World's Fittest Book.
