A gruelling journey of 1,500 km.
After 135 days, Sean Conway has become the first person to swim the length of Britain.
Jellyfish stings, dangerous tides and autumn storms meant the adventure was full of peril.
And his face was so cold he couldn’t chew, and had to have his meals pureed.
Back on land, he had to wait just a little longer to dry out.

1,500 km の厳しい旅。
135日後、Sean Conway はイギリスの長さを泳いだ最初の人になった。
