A man with no legs or arms succesfully swam from Alaska to Russia on August 17th.
At the age of 26-years-old, Philippe Croizon arms and legs were amputated after he had an electrical accident in 1994.
The trip took approximately an hour and 15 minutes and he swam over 2 miles in distance. The water was freezing at temperatures of 39 degrees Fahrenheit.
Although Croizon has no limbs, he does use prosthetics to swim. He also has a swim partner.
He is the second person to ever swim the Bering Strait from Alaska to Russia. He hopes his achievements teach people that people with handicaps have many abilities.
