Martin Strel looks like your typical middle-aged bloke. But he swims the longest rivers in the world to raise awareness for clean water. Martin would complete the most dangerous swim in human history, or die trying.In 2007, after 66 days, he became the first person to swim the Amazon, 3,274 miles from the Peruvian Andes to the Atlantic shores of Brazil. Millions followed his progress online. On this extraordinary journey he dodged piranhas and river pirates, met indigenous tribes who either revered him as a god or chased him with machetes. Like pioneers who climbed Everest or explored the poles, he shifted the limits of human capability. His story ??? of exhaustion, illness, bravery and determination ??? is an inspiration to people everywhere.
