Brisbane teenager swims across English Channel twice, loses layer of tongue

A Brisbane teenager has become the second-youngest person to swim the English Channel twice in one day, swimming 68 kilometres in 22 hours to make it happen.

Brianna Thompson, 17, lost a layer of her tongue and suffered from severe leg cramps and jellyfish stings in the swim from England to France and back — a feat of endurance only achieved by 20 others.

Channel Swim Abandoned Due To SIPE 2nd August 2016

Well that didn't go to plan. Instead of recovering from a celebratory Babycham in the White Horse in Dover I found myself in a hospital bed in Ashford on Sunday morning. My attempt to swim the English Channel was foiled in French inshore waters by Swimming Induced Pulmonary Edema (SIPE). I'd been airlifted from my support boat and was in a resuss bed.

The First 11 Hours

I started my Channel swim just after 7am on Saturday morning. The training had been done, it was a beautiful morning and weather was forecast to be improving. I had the pilot and crew that I wanted. I was raring to go. I was greased up in the mixture of sun cream and udder cream which it’s basically a mix of Vaseline and lanolin (good for cows and Channel swimmers and even better for Channel swimming cows). Over the side and a short swim to the beach at Samphire Hoe for the official start. A few Pilates moves on the beach and some wise motivational words to myself about not stopping until I hit France and I was off.

This alumnus took a sabbatical to swim the English Channel

If the weather gods are well-inclined, former EUR doctoral candidate and ex-EM employee Ignacio Vaccaro will swim the English Channel next week, from Dover to the French coast. To make this possible, he took a sabbatical from his well-paid job and has been training for the past two years.

Watch: Trio begin 70km swim around Malta

Three swimmers are out to raise awareness about marine litter

Three swimmers began a gruelling 70-kilometre swim around Malta on Friday afternoon, as they seek to raise awareness about marine litter.

Swimmers Neil Agius, Gilbert Bartolo and Richard Zerafa jumped in the water at Marfa at 6pm, taking the first strokes in what will be a 24-hour test of their will and determination.

Starting in Marfa, the swimmers will go on throughout the night, swimming clockwise around the island’s coast arriving back at Marfa by around 6pm on Saturday. 

They will be stopping briefly every 30 minutes or so to sip water and eat small portions of food.

Kyra Wijnker zwemt in de vakantie Het Kanaal over

Den Helder – Op haar bril zit nog lichte condens. Dat verraadt dat Kyra Wijnker (19) vanochtend vroeg – 04.15 uur- uit de veren is gegaan om in Alkmaar haar zwemtraining te kunnen doen. Op de terugweg naar Den Helder sluit ze in de trein even haar ogen. Om daarna nog even in de sportschool te kunnen ‘pompen’.

Swimming with MS: Former Montrealer taking on extraordinary challenge

Early next month, the 53-year-old Victoria resident will be the first to attempt a double crossing of the Juan de Fuca Strait.

Only seven people have swum the frigid length of the Juan de Fuca Strait, a 33-km channel between Washington state’s Olympic Peninsula and Vancouver Island, without a wetsuit. One of them is former Montrealer Susan Simmons, an open-water ultra-marathon swimmer. When she swam the strait last summer, she clocked the shortest time on record: 10 hours, six minutes.

Scientific Research During The Longest Swim

When Benoît Lecomte walks down the sandy beach on the eastern coast of Japan and steps off the coast of Chōshi in Chiba Prefecture in late May, he will begin the longest solo stage swim in human history.

He estimates that this stage swim will take 6-8 months to cross 5,419 miles (8,721 km) from Japan to the United States in wholly unchartered waters for an individual in the water.
