Next week, I announce a swim unlike any challenge I have previously undertaken,” tweeted International Marathon Swimming Hall of Famer Lewis Pugh.

The photo above shows Derrick Frazer after helping Pugh prepare off the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa.

But since Pugh has done numerous swims in Antarctica, across the North Pole, up on Mount Everest, in the Maldive Islands, from and around Robben Island, across the English Channel from England to France, and swims from Dassen Island to Ysterfontein, across Lake Malawi, around Cape Agulhas, around North Cape in Finland, around the Cape of Good Hope, around Cape Peninsula, down Sogneford, Norway, across Magdalenefjord, Spitsbergen, across Nelson Mandela Bay, from Manly Beach to Sydney Opera House in Australia, at the World Winter Swimming Championships in Finland, in Nigards Glacier Lake, Norway, down the River Thames in 21 days, and several other swims, what possibly could he be up to?

Find out soon.
