Svalbard: 93 Years Later - Spitsbergen Retraced

In August 1923, four members of Oxford University pioneered the East-West crossing of the unexplored Eastern Spitsbergen in Svalbard by ski and sled. Their pioneering endeavour captured the spirit of early Arctic exploration – determination, physical endurance and intellectual curiosity.

Ninety-three years later, five members of the same university will repeat the groundbreaking trip for entirely unsupported and seeking out previously unclimbed routes in the surrounding mountains.
They leave in July 2016. Adventure Uncovered will follow them in a four-part series this year, find out more... ‪#‎svalbard‬ ‪#‎oxforduniversity‬ ‪#‎spitsbergen‬ ‪#‎adventure‬ ‪#‎expedition‬

In July Ben Lecomte will set off to become the first person to swim the Pacific Ocean to help raise awareness of climate change.
In order to accomplish this feat he'll need to swim 8 hours a day, 7 days a week for 180 days, burning as much as 10,000 calories per day, covering more than 5500 miles (8851 km) between Tokyo and San Francisco.
