The 32-year-old will set off later this month, hoping to become the first swimmer to achieve the 136km feat, which will take her upwards of 45 hours.

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.

History's First Current-Neutral 100-Mile Swim

A few days after Caroline Block attempted a two-way crossing of the North Channel, fighting gallantly for 28 hours 55 minutes, and the same day that Chloë McCardel announced her four-way 136 km English Channel crossing between August 29th and September 2nd, Sarah Thomas walked into calm water of Lake Champlain situation along the Canada-United States border.

Gehandicapte Erwin van Emmerik uit Zoetermeer zwemt Noord Aa over

Wanneer de gehandicapte zwemmer Erwin van Emmerik volgende maand de Noord Aa over zwemt, wordt hij niet alleen door zijn broer Martijn gesteund. In de begeleidende reddingsboot van de Zoetermeerse Watersportvereniging 'Noord Aa' vaart ook lange-afstandzwemmer Richard Broer mee.

Daarmee heeft Van Emmerik zich verzekerd van de enorme ervaring van de gelauwerde kilometervreter Broer. ,,Martijn fungeert als tolk, want Erwin is door zijn handicap moeilijk te verstaan. Tijdens de trainingen begrijpen we elkaar wel, maar wanneer Erwin geconcentreerd zijn kilometer naar de overkant van de plas zwemt, dan komt het aan op een goede communicatie", aldus Broer.
