Pretty neat. Personally I never understood things like this, but to each their own, glad she achieved what she set out to do.

"American open water marathon swimmer Sarah Thomas just became the first person to swim across the English Channel four times, nonstop.

According to the BBC, the 37 year old began her epic feat early on Sunday morning, finishing 54 hours later on the shores of Dover. Strong tides stretched the four crossings from what was originally planned to be an 84-mile swim into a 130-mile-long slog. Previously, four other swimmers have made triple crossings of the channel, but Thomas is the first to swim the Channel four times."


WOW!!!!
