TWO of the world’s most fearless adventurers and scientists are to give a free public lecture at the University of Portsmouth.

Dr Jim Milledge and Dr Jim Cotter are among the most experienced endurance sportsmen in the world.

Their lecture ‘Performing at Extremes: Two hemispheres in 55 years’ is being held in the St Michael’s building from 5pm until 6.15pm on Wednesday, July 9.

They are being brought to Portsmouth by the university’s professor of human and applied physiology, Mike Tipton, who has spent 30 years examining humans’ physiological and psychological responses to adverse environments.

He said: ‘This talk gives an opportunity to meet and hear from two remarkable men from opposite sides of the planet who have dedicated their lives and careers to pushing the limits of human endurance and studying the physiological implications of doing so.’

The lecture is free, but must be booked at
