Being the second female and second Australian to complete a double crossing of the English Channel, Chloe McCardel is one of Australia’s best marathon swimmers. She’s won the prestigious 46km Manhattan Island race and is now gearing up for a triple-crossing of the English Channel.

In the podcast Chloe covers:

  • How to adjust to cold water for open water swims
  • The one change she made to her diet that helped her swim the fastest channel time in 2011
  • Why breaking up all tasks into smaller size chunks can improve your mental toughness in races

*Correction: Chloe would actually be the 4th person, 1st Australian and 2nd female to complete a triple crossing if she is successful in her attempt not the 2nd person ever as I mentioned in the introduction.
