Sarah Thomas becomes the first woman to swim across English Channel four times!

In what should be a highly motivating factor for the cancer survivors, Sarah Thomas has become the first woman to swim across the English Channel four times. While it is a great feat in itself, what sends even more powerful vibes is the fact that she was undergoing treatment for breast cancer just a year ago!

A Great Journey!

Sarah set off on her journey in the early hours of Sunday and completed the task in 54 hours and emerged out of the channel on Tuesday at 6.30 am. The first words that escaped mouth when she came out were – “I just can’t believe we did it”

She dedicated her achievement to all the cancer survivors out there. Having been an open water marathon swimmer from Colorado, she had to take a break from swimming because of the breast cancer that she was diagnosed with in 2017. She had indeed tested her endurance to the limits as she swam for 54 hours to complete 215 km distance.

Like the Swimmer Lewis Pugh puts it, “Just when we think we’ve reached the limit of human endurance, someone shatters the records.”

However, Thomas herself was not sure of whether she would be able to achieve the feat. She expressed the reservations in a Facebook post that she shared before taking up the challenge. She claimed she was not 100 per cent sure.

Her feat will now form part of a documentary made by filmmaker Jon Washer. The documentary titled “The Other Side” is expected to premiere on BBC soon.

In essence, Sarah has become the first person to cross the English Channel four times nonstop, and she did it after being away from Swimming for two years and even after going through the harrowing experience of surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy is not a small feat.
She made Americans proud and gave a lot of motivation to the Cancer survivors and their dependents!
