A talk about cold water swimming including Andy's epic 23-mile solo swim of Loch Ness

Adventure Talk: Andrew Wolf
Professor Andrew Wolf qualified from Cambridge in 1980 and trained in anaesthesia and paediatrics in the UK and abroad. Andy is a successful lecturer in anaesthesia and amongst his achievements he was elected President of the Association of Paediatric Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland in 2015. Before starting medicine, Andy swam at an elite level both at senior and junior level, representing GB in individual medley, butterfly and 1500m freestyle. Andy retired in 2017 and took up the challenge of supporting cutting edge developments at the Childrens Hospital through his work as Ambassador of the Grand Appeal. He led a team of doctors across the English Channel in 2017.Then a year later completed a solo channel swim. He completed the swim in 12hrs 42 minutes and was awarded the OClee Trophy by the Channel Swimming Association as the oldest successful swim in 2018. This swim raised over 30,000 pounds to establish a state of the art 3D printing facility to help plan and treat babies with heart disease. He has more recently developed an interest in ice swimming... This talk will feature stories of some of his most recent cold water swimming accolades including world records at the 2023 Ice World Championships in France, his three Gold medals at the 2020 Winter Cold Water Swimming World Championships as well as his epic 23-mile solo swim of Loch Ness, all in aid of the Bristol Childrens Hospital Grand Appeal.
