  • Lewis William Gordon Pugh, OIG, (born 5 December 1969) is a British-South African endurance swimmer and ocean advocate. He has been described as the "Sir Edmund Hillary of swimming." He was the first person to complete a long-distance swim in every ocean of the world, and he frequently swims in vulnerable ecosystems to draw attention to their plight. Pugh is best known for undertaking the first swim across the North Pole in 2007 to highlight the melting of the Arctic sea ice. In 2010 he swam across a glacial lake on Mount Everest to draw attention to the melting of the glaciers in the Himalayas, and the impact the reduced water supply will have on peace in the region. In 2018 he swam the full length of the English Channel to call for 30% of the world's oceans to be protected by 2030. In 2010 Pugh was named a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum and in 2013 the United Nations appointed him as the first UN Patron of the Oceans. In 2016 he played a pivotal role in creating the largest marine reserve in the world in the Ross Sea off Antarctica. The media coined the term "Speedo Diplomacy" to describe his efforts swimming in the icy waters of Antarctica and shutting between the USA and Russia to help negotiate the final agreement. Pugh currently serves as an Adjunct Professor of International Law at the University of Cape Town. (en)
  • Lewis Pugh (Plymouth, 5 dicembre 1969) è un nuotatore britannico. OIG Lewis William Gordon Pugh è un nuotatore che ha compiuto imprese estreme, spesso in ecosistemi vulnerabili, proprio con lo scopo di attirare l'attenzione sulla situazione di fragilità in cui versano. Per le sue battaglie e impegno sociale a favore della salvaguardia dell'ambiente, è stato definito anche 'difensore dell'oceano'. È stato chiamato il "Sir Edmund Hillary del nuoto" ed è stato il primo uomo a coprire lunghe distanze a nuoto in ogni oceano del mondo. Dopo il 2003, Pugh si è concentrato su imprese natatorie pionieristiche nelle acque più fredde e più ostili della Terra. Tutte sono state effettuate in conformità con le regole della Channel Swimming Association, con indosso solo un costume da bagno, cuffia e occhialini protettivi. Ha nuotato per primo intorno al Capo Nord, il punto più settentrionale d'Europa. L'anno seguente è diventato il primo a nuotare per l'intera lunghezza del Sognefjord in Norvegia, percorrendo 204 km in 21 giorni. Nel luglio 2007 Pugh ha intrapreso la prima nuotata a lunga distanza attraverso il Polo Nord geografico. Ha impiegato 18 minuti e 50 secondi per completare il percorso di un chilometro (1000 m) a nuoto, attraverso un tratto di mare aperto, in acqua alla temperatura di -1,7 °C. Jørgen Amundsen, pronipote dell'esploratore norvegese Roald Amundsen, lo ha seguito sciando al suo fianco durante la nuotata, che ha coinciso con la più bassa copertura di ghiaccio marino artico mai registrata.
