    Certainly making all of us "losers" who have only swam one-way feel bad about ourselves Few can really appreciate the cash, will, unusual motivation, and bionic shoulders that go into this feat.

    A truly epic accomplishment!!!

    I can't wait for the documentary film to come out.

    That last bit took forever. Her first 3 laps were around 12 hours each; the last one just over 17. The tides and exhaustion really hit. it's just incredible.

    We don't know exactly where she is right now, but we know what she's doing.

    The wind and waves also worked against her. I can't fathom what it took to make that last sprint towards the harbor.
