“Swimming the English Channel has been the biggest achievement of my life. It wasn’t just the swim, it was the whole journey getting there, right from the moment I committed. I will always remember seeing and listening to Chloë McCardel talking about swimming the English Channel at the Queenscliff open water swim. I decided then and there that I was going to do it. Thanks Chloë for leading me through an amazing adventure. I couldn’t have asked for more from a coach, a mentor and now a friend. And I’m not finished yet, a double-crossing attempt in August 2019…same place, same coach.”
