In detail

Lewis has received a number of awards including France and South Africa's highest honours, as well as the Freedom of the City of London. In 2010, the World Economic Forum named him a Young Global Leader for his "potential to contribute to shaping the future of the world through inspiring leadership" and in 2013 the United Nations Environment Programme appointed him "Patron of the Oceans." Lewis is the only person to have completed a long distance swim in every ocean of the world. To date he has pioneered more swims around famous landmarks than any other swimmer in history. Each of these seemingly impossible feats was done to raise awareness about the vulnerability of our oceans and their importance to humanity. And he's not finished yet.
