E127 - GREG WHYTE OBE: 125 miles of the River Thames Propulsion Swimming Podcast

    • Swimming

This week on the Propulsion Swimming Podcast, we talk to 'Ultra Endurance Nutter' Professor Greg Whyte OBE!!   

Greg Whyte has coached 36 Sport & Comic Relief and Children in Need Challenges helping raise over £60 million for charity, including David Walliam's 8 day swim of the River Thames in 2012.  

He recently completed a 125 mile swim of the River Thames raising over £30k for lifesaving charities RLSS and RNLI. We talk to him about the challenge, the effects of swimming 50k in one day, recovering on very little sleep and his bicep injury. We also discuss the disgusting water quality he faced thanks to Thames Water dumping sewage straight into the water system.
