Alex "The Rocket" Scovell
I am a 29 year old marketing professional living in Maidstone Kent. I have been swimming competitively from a young age and spent my life participating in watersports of various kinds. These days I focus on swimming and triathlon with the channel swim being the main focus for 2012 – it will be a great achievement when (not if) we complete it. The thing I fear most about the challenge is failing due to hypothermia – this is a critical part to our success and we will be working to ensure we are used to the cold temperatures for long time periods.
