Default Lewis Pugh toughest endurance swimmer ever

My brother in law who is a journalist has covered Lewis Pugh in various places around the world

https://www.mensjournal.com/adventur...s-of-all-time/

Right now, Lewis Pugh is taking on a huge challenge by swimming the length of the Channel - around 330 miles (530km) - from Cornwall to Dover.

The swim, which he hopes to complete within 50 days, is part of the worldwide Action for Oceans campaign, which calls on governments to fully protect at least 30% of the world's oceans by 2030.

As well as raising awareness about ocean health, Pugh's swim will seek to highlight the positive impact marine conservation zones have on marine life.

I was following this guy's updates on sky news, i wanted to check out his stroke but it only ever seems to show little snippets and cut scenes of a few seconds

is there actually any decent footage of him swimming?
