Watch Gordon Benson battling through the Red Bull Neptune Steps in Glasgow. The water was an icy three degrees during the epic open water adventure race that took place during lashing rain. As if having to hoist themselves over seven canal lock gates using ropes and ladders and ducking waterfalls during 420m of open water swimming weren’t enough!
Spend a day in Slovakia with Richard Varga AKA ‘The Fish’ (because he is considered the fastest swimmer among triathletes). There’s no better way to get to know someone properly than spending some time where they live experiencing their day to day life.
