    The swim has been done before , i think if he gets past that he will complete it, die or be forced to stop. I don't think he would exactly give up, having the mentality to be doing this kind of thing suggests he hasn't got the mentality to quit when its really messing him up!

    yeah but it was done before in a wetsuit. Based on the article he's just going to wear a speedo and no wetsuit. I can't see him being able to go very long without hypothermia setting
    in.

    I'm aware that he has already been doing a lot of conditioning training for this in some pretty harsh waters but still it would be incredible if he made it.

    no doubt. It'll be interesting to see if it does make it if he keeps all of his fingers and toes.
