Long-distance swimmer Lynton Mortensen discusses his latest challenge as he is bound for the Antarctic.
Mr Mortensen said the water temperature is anticipated to be at zero degrees.
“And it’s just the pair of the good old budgie smugglers, cap and goggles,” he told Sky News Australia.
“So there’s no wetsuit.
“We’re aiming for an ice mile if we can, conditions permitting – I did one at the Arctic 2022 and the water temperature there was minus one.”
