Meet the Australian who broke his third world-record just before COVID stuck

August 18, 2020 Accolades No Comments Email Email

Australian Daniel Bull is a three-time world record breaking extreme adventurer who has spent over 16 years pushing his mind and body to the limits to overcome his physical adversities and achieve his childhood dream of climbing the world’s highest heights.

Just before COVID-19 closed international borders this year, Daniel defied cardiologist’s advice and achieved biggest challenge, his latest feat – the Guinness Record for the World’s Highest Altitude Swim (in sub-zero degree waters without even a wetsuit!) – and now, he’s back home facing his Stage 4 lockdowns in Victoria.

A bit more about Daniel’s experiences:

  • This September, Daniel will feature in latest (and his third) edition of the Guinness Book of Records.
  • In 2007, Daniel became the first Australian to successfully climb the Seven Summits and the Volcanic Seven Summits, as well as the highest volcano in Antarctica, Mt Sidley.
  • Daniel has defied the odds on the path to achieve his dreams:
    • Despite suffering chronic childhood asthma and Raynaud’s phenomenon, Daniel has battled extreme altitudes, hypothermia and risked cardiac arrest to prove he could make the impossible possible.
    • Daniel’s standby survival team abandoned the first attempt at the Highest Swim 24 days into the 25 day journey to the lake – fearing the risk was just too great.
    • One of his near-death experiences saw him plummet almost 50 metres during his descent of Ama Dablam in 2004, before finally catching his crampons in the ice.
