Susie Maroney Still Making A Splash

International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame Susie Maroney, who made a splash in the marathon swimming world in her prime, is once again making a splash at the Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children’s Splash for Cash swimathon.

A frequent supporter of the Splash for Cash, Susie helps raise money for deaf children and blind children, “I’m absolutely delighted and honoured to be an ambassador for the Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children’s Splash for Cash swimathon. I look forward immensely to being there on the day and meeting everyone.”

At 15, Susie swam the English Channel in a fast 8:29 in 1990. At 16, she set the world record for a double Channel crossing in 17:14. Susie did two other long-distance swims: Cuba to the USA in 23 hours 47 minutes and 200K from Mexico to Cuba in 30 hours 23 minutes.
