Craig Melvin, an MSNBC anchor and NBC’s Today Show correspondent, and a TV crew traveled to Maine to interview American dynamo Pat Gallant Charette about her open water swimming accomplishments and her final attempt at the elusive Oceans Seven – something she has been moving towards since 2008.

Over the course of Gallant-Charette’s career, she has set numerous records:

* Strait of Gibraltar, third fastest woman of all time and the fastest American woman in 2010
* Catalina Channel, oldest woman to successfully cross at the age of 60 in 14 hours 11 minutes in 2011
* Tsugaru Channel, oldest woman to successfully cross at the age of 61 in 19 hours 36 minutes in 2012
* North Channel, oldest woman to successfully cross at the age of 65 years in 14 hours 22 minutes in 2016
* Molokai Channel, oldest woman to successfully cross at the age of 66 years in 23 hours 54 minutes in 2017
* English Channel, oldest woman to successfully cross at the age of 66 years in 17 hours 55 minutes in 2017

The 66-year-old’s legacy and swims will be described on The Today Show on July 25th in the United States.
