Channel Swimming History

After being pulled from the water in her first channel swim attempt at the age of 43 in the Catalina Channel, she came back from that disappointment in victorious fashion. She has crossed the Catalina Channel and English Channel several times and is the oldest person to successfully do a two-way crossing of the English Channel.
