Recently a 33-year-old swimmer and fitness expert, Ross Edgley, returned from an epic 1,780-mile (2,800 km) journey. Ross spent 5 months at sea and is believed to be the first person to swim around the island of Great Britain.

最近,33岁的游泳兼健身专家罗斯·埃德格利(Ross Edgley)刚完成了史诗级的2800公里海上环游之旅。罗斯在海上呆了5个月,成为世界上游泳环绕大不列颠岛的第一人。


However, after reaching the shore there are plenty of challenges waiting for him. “The biggest challenge now is learning to walk again! My biggest fear when I was coming out of the water and back onto the beach was that I was going to fall over. As I’ve not stepped foot on land for over five months, the tendons and ligaments in my feet have been asleep, so I basically have to learn to walk again.
然而,在他上岸后,还有许多挑战在等着他。“现在最大的挑战就是学会走路!当我从海里出来再次回到岸上时,我最大的恐惧就是怕我会摔倒。因为我已经五个多月没有踏上陆地了,我脚上的肌腱和韧带都处于休眠状态,所以我基本上得再学一遍如何走路。“


Ross is not new to extreme challenges. He accomplished the world’s longest rope climb in less than 24 hours by climbing the height equal of Mount Everest — 8,848m (29,029 feet)
这已经不是罗斯第一次参加极限挑战了。他曾创下24小时内攀绳到达珠穆朗玛峰高度(8,848米)的世界纪录。


He also attempted to swim 100km in the Caribbean carrying a 100lb tree
他还带着一棵重100磅的树在加勒比海游了100公里。


On his Twitter account, Ross shared what his body looked like after this swim
罗斯在他的推特上分享了一张照片,这是此次游泳结束后他的身体


However, his newest greatest challenge didn’t come without a cost either
然而,完成这些高难度的挑战也是有代价的


To have enough energy for the swim around Great Britain he had to consume 15,000 calories per day
为了补充足够的能量环游大不列颠岛,他每天要摄入15000卡路里





He was suffering from what is referred to as “salt mouth“, caused by the build-up of salt water on the tongue
他患了所谓的“盐口“,这是由于舌头上盐水积聚造成的。


Ross also shared a photo to show how his feet looked like after swimming

He developed severe chafing on his neck
他脖子上有严重的擦伤


He had to swim surrounded by jellyfish and even a shark
他在游泳的时候身边还有水母甚至鲨鱼


While these 157 days at sea were extremely exhausting and challenging, Ross managed to break 4 world records during this amazing feat
虽然这157天的海上之旅非常辛苦、充满挑战,罗斯还是成功地创下了四项世界纪录


The records include – the first person to swim the entire South Coast of the UK, the longest ever staged sea swim, the fastest person on the planet to swim from Land’s End to John O’Groats
这些记录包括——成为游完英格兰南岸的第一人,打破了连续游泳时间最长的纪录,创下了从英格兰最西南方的兰兹角游到苏格兰最东北方约翰岬角的最快记录


And the most important one – the first person to swim around Great Britain!
当然,最重要的就是——他成为了周游大不列颠岛的第一人!
