Olympian Alex Gregory Proves that the Sacrifice is Real

Olympic Athletes Put Their Bodies Through Hell

It is no secret that athletes put their bodies through grueling obstacles when in training, and, as it turns, out they even do the same in the name of charity.

Alex Gregory, a five-time World Champion and two-time Olympic gold medalist in rowing, is part of the Polar Row. Polar Row is a rowing expedition focused on exploring the Arctic, collecting environmental data and raising money for charity. What a great guy!

The oh so cool temperatures of the Arctic tends to have a negative effect on the body and Gregory took to Twitter to share a striking image from his trek. And by striking, I mean completely repulsive.

Talk about some serious sacrifice! See what Twitter users had to say:
