The 34km (21 mile) English Channel is considered the most gruelling swim in the world. Since Webb's triumph, there have been 6 200 known attempts to swim the English Channel. More than 470 people were successful over 600 times, including a 12-year-old boy in 1979, a 12-year-old girl in 1983, a 65-year-old man in 1983, and a 45-year-old woman in 1975. Mike Read holds the men's record, and Alison Streeter surpassed him with the women's record. Matthew Webb, in search of an ever greater challenge, died attempting to swim the violent whirlpool rapids below Niagara Falls in 1882.
The first woman to swim the English Channel was 19-year old AmericanGertrude Ederle. From 1921 to 1925, Ederle set 29 US and world records for swimming races ranging from the 50 metre (50 yard) to the half-mile race. In the 1924 Summer Olympic Games, she won a gold medal as a member of the championship US 400-meter freestyle relay team, at only 17 years of age. On 6 August 1926 she crossed the English Channel in 14 hours and 31 minutes - 2 hours faster than the men's record - setting a woman's world record that stood for 35 years. It brought her even further international acclaim, and a ticker parade in New York. Sadly, she became partially deaf as a result of her Channel swim.Swimming the open ocean, any ocean, is no easy feat. The water is icy cold, the tides are fierce, and the traffic of tankers and ferries is daunting. Such huge challenges, however, seem to be the thriving factor for the most brave. One of whom is Alison Streeter, a thirtysomething currency trader from London. Known as "Queen of the Channel," she has swum the chilly Channel more times than anyone else - 37 crossings to date. Streeter first swam the Channel at 18, is the first woman to swim the 'double', and the only woman ever to have completed the 'three-way' to France, back and to France again.
