Martin Strel

This article on the BBC website is amazing. This Slovenian marathon swimmer, Martin Strel, who defines himself as “just a regular common guy who just has higher goals than usual” managed to swim the length of the Amazon. Piranhas, you say? Well, as long as he remembered to rub his wetsuit down with creams and gasoline (to cover his smell) and his team chummed the other side of his boat with meat and blood, the pesky little carnivires seemed to stay away. As he motored towards the ocean, his biggest concern was that his team were dropping like flies from terrible tropical diseases. If you want to feel a little more mediocre than usual, read this one.
