Ice Water Fire

Ice Water Fire

Georgios is now re-training his body and mind for an extreme challenge in ultramarathon running. By running the Marathon des Sables in April 2015, Georgios aims to complete his long awaited Ice Water Fire challenge and become the first person in history to complete these three grueling events.

I recently re-read The Hound of Heaven by Francis Thompson.

In 2000 he swam the English Channel, covering the 21 mile distance in the year’s fastest recorded time of 9 hours and 20 minutes, earning him the English Channel Swimming Association’s Rolex Award. In order to withstand the unavoidable hypothermia, Georgios gained 20kg of body weight for this event.

In 2004, Georgios climbed to the summit of Mount Everest and, in collaboration with the Athens 2004 Olympic Games Committee, took the Olympic flag to the highest point on Earth for the first time ever. Not only did he reach the 8848m summit, but he did so via the notoriously difficult northern side route, becoming the first ever Greek climber to do so.
