Description

Chloë McCardel (Australian) holds multiple marathon swimming World Records. Chloë continues to push the boundaries of marathon swimming and what the human mind and body can achieve. Described as the greatest ultra-marathon swimmer in history, an inspiration and role model, Chloë aims to achieve the impossible.

On October 13th 2021 Chloë broke the World Record for Greatest Crossings, previously held by British swimmer Alison Streeter MBE, who completed the crossing 43 times. Chloë ‘s 44x English Channel swims include 35x single, 3x double and a triple non-stop crossing (Australian Record) and the longest non-stop ocean swim (124km, 42hrs).

She has been recognised by the International Swimming Hall of Fame, (ISHOF), International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame (IMSHOF), Marathon Swimmers Federation (MSF) and the Channel Swimming Association (CSA) for her outstanding achievements. Chloë was also a joint-winner of Marie Clare’s 2020 ‘Women of the Year’ for her record breaking 35th Channel swim and advocacy work.

Chloë has uses her extensive marathon experience to provide high quality, specialised swim coaching to her swimmers. She has coached and coordinated over 150 people, from the ages of 15 – 60 years, from across the globe, to swim the English Channel in relays and solos. She has recently launched World First Relays to be held annually between Ramsgate (England) to Nieuwpoort (Belgium) from July 2022, a distance of 92km across the cold and rough North Sea.

The training for the relays (which includes extensive coaching and cold water swim camps) in conjunction with the relays themselves are arguably the best training towards a future English Channel or other solo marathon swim. They are also an amazing life changing adventure in their own right.

She has been coaching English Channel swimmers since 2013. One of her swimmers, Rick Seirer, a farmer from country Victoria, became the oldest person in history to swim a double non-stop English Channel crossing (68kms) in 2019. He took 30hrs to make the 68km journey in circa 16C water.

Chloë is also an international keynote speaker and advocate on behalf of domestic violence victims.
