Meet The Man Attempting To Swim Across The Pacific Ocean (For An Incredible Cause)

 1 year ago       144 Views

French endurance athlete Ben Lecomte just set out to become the first person to swim across the entire Pacific Ocean—a feat that will take more than six months if he logs eight hours in the water a day.

More than a physical challenge, the swim is an act of conservation.

After years of training with open-ocean swims, biking, and running, he'll be eating a no-sugar, high-fat diet on board and taking things one hour at a time with the help of some mindful rituals.

The start of Lecomte's adventure leads into World Oceans Day on June 8—a global occasion to take a stand on ocean issues.

Even if you're not an ultra-ambitious endurance athlete, now is a great time to think a little bit more critically about how your everyday routine is helping or hurting the world's waters.

And one of the greatest threats to ocean health continues to be plastic pollution.
