Speaking Masterclass: Lewis Pugh – Swimming at the North Pole

It takes a very special type of person to swim at the North Pole…
Lewis Pugh is not only crazy enough to do this but he is also a master of storytelling. He takes us right into the heart of his experiences and allows us to relive and imagine them with all our senses
