Flesh-eating fleas no concern for Chloe McCardel in record Channel swim bid

Ultra-marathon swimmer Chloe McCardel has no fear of flesh-eating sea fleas, sharks or even ships, saying her record non-stop quadruple English Channel crossing bid is about pushing her body and mind to a new level.

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.
