Martin Strehl!

Martin Strehl is the man who swam the Amazon, making him the furthest swimming human to date.

"On his swims his swims he drinks two bottles of wine, made from his own grapes, every day and even more when he's on dry land."

"Strehl is a star in his native Slovenia. Women of a certain age blush and giggle at the mention of his name."
"Hanging out with Strehl, I could quickly feel in my bloated belly exactly how he puts that lost river weight back on.

We ate and ate and ate-and we drank and drank and drank"

These quotes are from an article in Outside magazine, called Glorious Bastard. It was written by W. Hodding Carter.
