Madhu Nagaraja – Straits of Magellan 2015

Madhu Nagaraja is an ordinary man that does extraordinary things.

Madhu is currently training to become the 22nd person to successfully swim across the Straits of Magellan in January 2015. More people have been to outer space than to have swum across the Straits of Magellan! This crossing is rarely completed due to unpredictable fierce winds, sea conditions and extreme cold-water temperatures (sub 5°C). The strait is famous for having brought down some monster ships in the history.

For Madhu it is not just about completing the challenge – it is about building teams that can work together to push the barriers of human achievements, it’s about building friendships, communities and memories that last forever - It's Not About The Swimming

Join Madhu and his team as we embark on this exciting new journey!
