Even though he said “never again” after swimming across the Atlantic Ocean, Ben Lecomte is now swimming across the Pacific Ocean from Tokyo, Japan to San Francisco. That’s 5,500 miles, 1,440 hours in the water, 180 days in the Ocean, 8 hours swim per day, and 8,000 calories per day. He trained for three years. This endeavor is dubbed “the longest swim in the name of sustainability.”
