The 25 Fittest Men in the World

Paul Ridley

This former crew team member at Colgate University became the youngest American to row solo across the Atlantic, traveling from the Canary Islands off the coast of Africa to Antigua in the Caribbean. Inspired by the 2001 death of his mother from skin cancer, Ridley did it to raise money for cancer research through Row for Hope, his nonprofit organization (www.rowforhope.com). Ridley trained for nine months, rowing up to 10 hours a day and putting on an extra 15 pounds to make up for the 20 he’d lose during the three-month ordeal.
