British man becomes first to swim at the North Pole
Lewis Gordon Pugh, an adventurer from Britain, has become the first
person to swim in the North Pole. The 37-year-old man swam 18
minutes and 50 seconds in the icy water. He swam one kilometre in
temperatures of minus 1.8-degree Celsius. He wanted to raise
awareness of how global warming is affecting the polar ice cap. He
swam in a water hole that was formed by melted ice. 'I hope my swim
will inspire world leaders to take climate change seriously. The
decisions which they make over the next few years will determine the
biodiversity of our world,' he said. He trained hard to prepare for the
expedition. He practised in a pool filled with a ton of ice every day.

A British man, called Lewis Gordon Pugh, has
become the first person to swim in the North Pole.
The 37-year-old man swam about 18 minutes in
the icy water. He wanted the world to pay more
attention to the problems caused by global
warming on the ice cap. 'I hope my swim will
inspire world leaders to take climate change
seriously. The decisions which they make over the
next few years will determine the biodiversity of
our world,' he said.
British man becomes first to swim in the North Pole
British endurance swimmer, Lewis Gordon Pugh, has become
the first person to swim in the North Pole. The 37-year-old
adventurer took 18 minutes and 50 seconds to swim one
kilometre in temperatures of minus1.8-degree Celsius. He
intended to raise awareness on the environmental impact of
global warming at the polar ice caps. He swam in a water hole
formed by melted ice. The area used to be covered by thick ice.
'I hope my swim will inspire world leaders to take climate
change seriously. The decisions which they make over the next
few years will determine the biodiversity of our world,' he said.
It took years of tough training for Pugh to succeed in this
expedition. He practised in a pool filled with icy water
everyday.
