Discovery Channel's show, Surviving the Cut makes you wonder what you thought you were doing in the pool. The show follows wannabe elite naval forces through intense training, including swimming in 45 degree water at night.
In a recent episode, we watched a black man, Guy Smith swim over a mile in 45 degree water with an injured leg. The group of SWCC candidates started out with 40 and ended up with 10 men over the course of 50 days of grueling basic training.
Next stop? Advanced training.
Guy Smith made the first cut. We'll see how he does in round two.
