The Luke Wadding Library at South East Technological University (SETU) in association with The Lifesaving Foundation presents 'Extreme Swimming - Swim Safely in Open Water' a public talk by Nuala Moore.
Nuala Moore is an Irish Open Water Swimmer from Dingle, Co. Kerry and an adventurer on a wider scale, mostly known for her extreme ice swims.
Over the last decade, Nuala has pushed the boundaries of open water swimming in some of the most dangerous and remote waters in the world. Nuala is self-coached, and develops her own training plans for tackling the ice; forging a path into pushing human limits without coaches, and focusing on what she believes is possible for herself. Pain was - and is - part of her journey.
Nuala holds two Guinness World Records for extreme cold-water swimming – the first for her part in the first and only international relay team to swim from Russia to the USA across the Bering Strait, and the second for her pioneering cold-water swim in the notorious Drake Passage, the body of water between South America's Cape Horn, Chile and the South Shetland Islands of Antarctica. She is the first swimmer in the world to swim from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean, the Drake Passage, Nuala is also the first Irish swimmer to complete 1000m @ 0 Degrees in 2013 and the 3rd woman in the world.
This is an open free public event which is taking place in The Auditorium in the Main Building on the SETUs Cork Road Campus in Waterford city.
