Extreme is the story of athletes who go to their edge to find out what they can do. Fergal Somerville ultra swimmer who thinks nothing of a channel swim or a ice water swim in freezing conditions. Fergal is a swimming mentor to those who often fear the open seas but for him a swim hat and google – and his gold lame swimming togs – is often just enough to get him in the mood to do extreme swims and some fun ones too including jumping from the bridges of Dublin’s River Liffey for charity. A big-hearted swimmer with a big appetite for swimming challenges.
Extreme will broadcast March 5th at 8pm with a second screening March 8th 6.40 pm and is free to air on Setanta..
