A political science instructor known as The Paddlin’ Professor, he became the first person to swim 58 km (36 miles) across Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire, USA. Dr. Briggs completed 43 marathon swims over the course of his career. At the age of 76, he swam 16 km (10 miles) across Lake Sunapee as a fundraiser and continues to do fundraising open water swims into his 90s.
