Marcy MacDonald, Nominee For The World Open Water Swimming Woman Of The Year

Marcy MacDonald is a 47-year-old podiatrist who completed her 11th and 12th crossing of the English Channel this year.

Serious, smiling and smart, the good doctor surrounds herself with an efficient team and gets it done every time. In 2011, she kicked off the English Channel season with the first Channel Swimming & Piloting Federation sanctioned swim in June with a 10 hour 34 minute crossing. Then she also ended the English Channel season with her 12th crossing of her career in October with an 11 hour 51 minute success.

How she works in these marathon feats given her responsibilities with patients and the causes she champions is one reason why she is nominated for the 2011 World Open Water Swimming Woman of the Year
