Sarah Thomas Is 58th Person To Complete Triple Crown

Sarah Thomas became the 58th person in history to complete the Triple Crown of Open Water Swimming with today’s completion of the English Channel.

The record holder of the Horsetooth Open Water Swim was leading the 2012 24-mile Tampa Bay Marathon Swim before it was cancelled due to thunderstorms. The Colorado resident trains at high altitude, but came down to sea level to complete the Catalina Channel in 2010 in 9 hours 6 minutes, the Manhattan Island Marathon Swim in 2011 in 7 hours 36 minutes, and the English Channel today in 11 hours 23 minutes.
