ESPN announced yesterday that Mick Fanning will be the subject of this Friday’s ESPN E:60, “a prime-time newsmagazine program, [featuring] profiles, investigations and cutting-edge stories focused on sports.”
It should be no surprise that Mick’s public profile has risen since his triumphant return to Jeffreys earlier this month, though the doc appears to have been filmed just prior. (“This past year, as Fanning geared up to return to South Africa and the waters where he nearly lost his life, E:60 met up with the surfer in his Australian homeland to discover more about the man behind the shark attack.”)
Narrating the episode will be none other than Thor himself, hollywood heartthrob and slightly above average surfer, Chris Hemsworth. Tune in Friday at 7PM ET.
