Jacques Tuset is one tough, adventurous guy.

Training in the south of France, Tuset traveled up to the Ice Swimming Aqua Sphere World Championships in Burghausen, Germany to attempt his first ice kilometer.

He jumped into the outer lane, closest to the encroaching surface ice, and finished in 15 minutes 50 seconds.

Satisfied with his ice swimming debut, Tuset will return to his global journey of prison island swims.

With Île d’Oléron – La Tremblade, Alcatraz Island, Le Château d’If, Fort Boyard, Robben Island, Cabrera Island – Majorque, Langholmen + Spike Island, Île du Levant, Sainte-Marguerite, Rottnest Island, Tabarca, Île de Brescou, Château du Taureau, Île de Gorée, Salvation Islands: Devil’s, St Joseph’s and Royale, Isla de San Simón, Isola delle Femmine, Drakes Island + Spitbank Fort, Île Mogador, and Devil’s Island completed, the King of Prison Island Swims has even more plans for future escapes.
