An Australian swimmer, Chloe McCardel, has completed her forty-fourth swim of the English Channel. This is a record number of times for a person to have swam the Channel. Last year, she completed her thirty-seventh crossing, beating the record held by a male swimmer of thirty-four times. She has now swam the Channel forty-four times, even though she was suffering breathing difficulties due to a chest infection on her last swim. She arrived at Pointe de la Courte Dune, in France, on Wednesday 13 October 2021, ten hours after setting off from Kent.
