About Jonty Warneken
Having my sporting career cut short by a serious car crash at the age of 22, where I lost my left leg below the knee, had my right ankle rebuilt (three times so far) a front skull and nose rebuild I have not let this slight inconvenience slow me down. I am the first disabled ice mile swimmer and was honoured to be invited to join the IISA board. I currently Co-Chair the Ice Swimming Hall of Fame and Guinness World Record holder. I am a keen out door all year round swimmer which I have always done since a young child, completed a number of swims including the first disabled relay across the North Channel with team \'Bits Missing\', an English Channel really, Solo One Way Lake Windermere swim, creator of the Para 5 swims aimed at disabled swimmers; swam five - 5KM swim in five countries in five days, and multiple marathon distance swims. I also have refereed most of the GB Ice Swimming Championships and GB Trials. I am passionate about encouraging other disabled swimmers into outdoor/wild/ice swimming. When I am not dreaming of cold rivers and lakes I am a keen alpine and cross country skier, watching rugby union, cycling and generally living life to the full.
