This guy took on seven oceans – and won!


You may not have heard of Adam Walker, but he’s about to make you feel very lazy. A few years ago, Walker was a kettle and toaster salesman who’d given up various sports he loved doing because of injury.

Today, he’s one of only six people to have ever completed the Ocean’s Seven challenge: seven of the most hardcore open water swims in the world.

The man’s got some stories to tell, and we wanted to hear them. So as he prepared to MC the Red Bull Neptune Steps event in Glasgow last weekend, we caught up with him to hear about his seven wildest encounters with the sea.
