Diego Lopez    

Explorer, Extreme Swimmer & Ocean Ambassador

Diego López defines himself as an explorer, an extreme swimmer, and an Ocean Ambassador. He has lived in eight different countries and visited 85 of them.

He is known as Global Swimmer, and recently became World Champion of his category at the Ice KM during the Ice Swimming World Championship held in March 2019 in the Arctic Circle. During 2018, he established a world record by being the first person to swim the most challenging events in each of the seven continents, including Antarctica. He has completed the Triple Crown of Open Water Swimming (Manhattan Swim, Catalina and English Channel) within a natural year, and has swum in the 28°F waters of Antarctica with no wetsuit.
