chloe mccardel

i just heard a story about chloe mccardel, one of australia's top marathon swimmers. in 2010 she won the prestigious manhattan island marathon and has completed a double crossing of the english channel.

on sunday she swam 60 laps of bondi beach (800m per lap) a total of 48km in 11 hours, setting an australian record, as a warm up for a triple crossing of the english channel. she started at 4 am! 

she will be the first australian and one of only 4 swimmers worldwide to complete a triple crossing if succesful.

go chloe!
