The English Channel - Het Kanaal

Chloë McCardel On Her English Channel Four-Way

Chloë McCardel is undergoing her final preparations for an unprecedented four-way crossing of the English Channel (history's first solo quadruple Channel crossing).

If there is anyone who could do it in the contemporary swimming world, it is the 32-year-old McCardel who already has a career total of 21 English Channel crossings under her swim cap.

“When I completed the triple, I was utterly exhausted – nauseous and hypothermic, with my swimming costume hanging off me because I’d burnt through so much body fat.

Four-Way EC? No Way! Chloë Can

Chloë McCardel is about to attempt the unthinkable.

She has done one-way crossings of the English Channel. She has done two-way crossings of the English Channel. She has done a three-way crossing of the English Channel.

And now she will attempt a four-way crossing.

A successful non-stop four-way crossing (quadruple Channel crossing) would be unprecedented and would bring her career English Channel crossing total to 25.

Australian ultra-marathon swimmer Chloe McCardel will be the first person to attempt a non-stop quadruple crossing of the English Channel.

McCardel is one of the only four people to complete a triple crossing of the channel from England to northern France, a feat that took 36 hours of non-stop swimming.

Daughter's appeal to solve missing trophy mystery - 50 years on

Helen Kaye-Wyatt, whose father Philip Kaye died in January, has only just discovered that a trophy was named in his honour to commemorate him swimming the English Channel in 1966.

She is now desperate to find out what happened to the trophy, which at one time may have been stored in a cabinet at the now-demolished Huddersfield Sports Centre.

Helen, who lives at Rastrick, has spoken to managers with Kirklees Active Leisure (KAL), which runs Huddersfield Leisure Centre, but has so far drawn a blank.

Channel Tunnel Vision | We Spoke To Howard James About His Double Record-Breaking Channel Swim

"Get up. Swim. Eat pizza. Go to bed"

In 2016, driven by personal loss and a intrinsic need for a new water-bound challenge, endurance swimmer Howard James set out to achieve two new world records for the earliest and the latest English Channel swims. To complete them would place him among the greats of British open water swimmers and up the ante in the challenging arena of Channel swimming.

In an age where athletes make fortunes billboarding for marketeers and sports live streams are the new gladiator spectacle for thrill seeking screen-sloths the world of endurance swimming slips quietly by without recognition, its participants stoically paddling on in relative anonymity.
