Sarah Thomas        

First Person to Complete a Four-Way Crossing of the English Channel, World Record-Holder for Longest Continuous Swim & Breast Cancer Survivor

Sarah Thomas is an ultra-marathon swimmer who holds the current world record for the longest continuous (unassisted, non wetsuit) swim done in current-neutral conditions. That record-breaking swim covered 104.6 miles over 67 hours and was completed in Lake Champlain (USA) in August of 2017.

Shortly after completing this swim, Thomas was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer. She was just 35 years old. While undergoing aggressive cancer treatment, including chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation therapy, Thomas never gave up on her dream of doing a swim that most people thought was impossible. One year after completing her cancer treatments, Thomas did just that by becoming the first person to complete a four way crossing of the English Channel in 54 hours and 10 minutes.
