It's Only a Matter of Time

Thinking about open- water swimming, marathon swimming and some of the incredible accomplishments of recent years, I wonder what the future in ultimate open-water swimming will be. Still today, swimming the English Channel is an incredible feat, but every year more and more swimmers do it. Some even complete double crossings and attempted triples. I recently forgot that back in 1998 Benoit Lecomte swam across the Atlantic. So the question stands, what's the ultimate open-water swim?

I think Martin Strel's 3,274 mile swim of the Amazon River over the course of 66 days is an amazing feat. Granted he had the river currents, and wore fins, but still that's a lot of swimming over 66 days.

I think Lynn Cox deserves a lot more media attention than she gets. I thought of her from the Bering Strait Swim (1987) which I think was called the "Peace Swim". She also swam to Antarctica and had done a ton of other incredible swims. Here's a link to an interview with her:

I totally agree. "Swimming to Antarctica" was an awesome book. Very inspirational. Definitely worth reading whether you're a swimmer or not. Now this would make a good movie.
