-In 2018, Cameron became the first person to complete a highly complex circumnavigation of the island Barbados, swimming a gruelling 96km around the jagged coastline in 41 hours.
- Earlier that same year he became the 11th person and 1st South African to complete the ‘Oceans 7’, the equivalent of the ‘7 Summits’ of mountaineering.
Cameron completes all his endurance feats for the Ubunye Challenge, a charity he founded in 2011 which focuses on funding infrastructure for early childhood development projects in the Eastern Cape and educational projects in Northern Zimbabwe.
Cameron will talk about when his athletic passion began, share in his more recent adventures and find out what motivates him to keep breaking the impossible.
