Izebel Sierra Arenas of Mexico completed the Triple Crown Of Open Water Swimming with her 14 hour 21 minute crossing of the English Channel on July 26th.

The 38-year-old is coached by Nora Toledano and Salvador Sánchez. She swam across with the escort of Captain Simon Ellis on the Seafarer II with crew member Marilyn Chritchley. “Swimming the English Channel has been my most wonderful experience so far. The Channel required my very best effort, it made me go beyond my limits and helped me discover new ones.”

Last year, she had previously completed the 20 Bridges Manhattan Island in 7 hours 10 minutes and a Catalina Channel crossing in 12 hours 15 minutes.
