This morning at 5:20 am, Australian Chloë McCardel has started on her latest attempt to replicate the extraordinarily rare feat of Jon Erikson (USA in 38 hours 27 minutes), Alison Streeter (Great Britain in 34 hours 40 minutes) and Philip Rush (New Zealand in 28 hours 21 minutes).

Her husband Paul McQueeney who is aboard her escort boat said, “Chloë has started strongly at 68 strokes per minute. This swim means the world to her and as you know from her previous ultra-marathons where she has been hospitalised afterwards, she will put her body on the line to achieve a successful result. She will not quit. Her commitment is second-to-none and she has a very strong team around her to give the best chance of success.

Her progress over the next day and a half can be followed via GPS tracker here.
