Swedish woman swam seven oceans
Swedish long distance swimmer Anna-Carin Nordin made history Monday when she became the first woman to swim "The Oceans Seven", sevens swims in as many oceans, writes the web site helahalsingland.se.
After having finished six earlier swims, she completed the septet by swimming 33.7 kilometres across the North Channel between Scotland and Ireland on Monday.
The first person to have managed the same feat was Irishman Stephen Redmond, who completed his seven swims by July 2012.
The Oceans Seven is a global seven-channel challenge that consists of the North Channel between Ireland and Scotland, the Cook Strait in New Zealand, the English Channel, the Molokai Channel in Hawaii, the Catalina Channel in the US, the Tsugaru Channel in Japan, and the Strait of Gibraltar.
