Ross Edgley Shatters World Record with Epic 510km Swim in deboer Wetsuit

In a stunning display of human endurance and cutting-edge technology, British ultra-athlete Ross Edgley has once again pushed the boundaries of aquatic achievement. Edgley has just completed an awe-inspiring 510km (317 miles) non-stop swim in Canada's Yukon River, potentially setting a new world record for the longest continuous swim.

Conquering Extreme Conditions

The 60-hour swim was nothing short of grueling. Edgley faced challenges that would deter even the most seasoned athletes:

-Water temperatures plummeting to 9°C (48.2°F)

-Navigating treacherous white water rapids

-The threat of wildlife encounters (Bears and wolves) 

-An ever-present risk of hypothermia

Despite these formidable obstacles, Edgley persevered without sleep or touching land, showcasing both his superhuman endurance and the effectiveness of his gear.

Edgley's success was in the deboer norseman 3.0 wetsuit, a marvel of modern swimwear technology. This cutting-edge wetsuit, polar booties and gloves played a massive role in the record-breaking attempt:

  • Advanced insulation properties maintained Edgley's core body temperature in the frigid Yukon waters.
  • The suit's flexible design allowed for unrestricted movement, crucial for maintaining efficiency over such a long distance.
  • Its durability withstood the harsh conditions of the Yukon River for the entire 60-hour swim.
