Omar El Galla does the extreme. The Egyptian cyclist, runner and open water swimmer is challenging himself to unprecedented distances in his native Egypt.

He has already cycled 6,500 km around Egypt in 65 days.

He recently completed a 1,500 km stage run in 36 days along the Nile River from Abu Simbel to Alexandria. After those extreme rides and ultra run, he is now planning to attempt a solo stage swim across the length of Egypt.

He will attempt the first assisted stage swim of the length of Egypt along the Red Sea coast from Suez to Shalateen.

Whatever comes my way I’ll deal with,” he said as he set off on his run.

He can be followed @omarelgalla.
