#149: Chloë McCardel: Goal Setting & Ultra-Marathon Swimming

Amazingly, Chloë didn’t learn how to swim until she was 11.

Yet within 2 years, she was swimming at State level and eventually had her eye on Olympic qualification.

Sadly, that wasn’t to be.

But during her university years, she discovered triathlons which led to marathon swimming.

The year was 2006 and the rest, as they say, is history!

She now holds multiple world records including for the longest ever unassisted swim by any person - a mind-blowing 124.4km which she swam in the Bahamas in 2014.

At the start of 2020, Chloë arrived in England with 31 crossings of the English Channel under her belt, and a plan to break the men’s record of 34 crossings.
