Teen Swimmer crosses Lake Ontario!

In 27-hours, Annaleise Carr "beasted" a 32.5 mile swim. Swimming in fresh water is not easy, it is not as buoyant as saltwater, it reacts more to the wind, and it is colder due to less density. (Those are my experiences with it)

"... Teenage swimmer Annaleise Carr has arrived at Toronto’s Marilyn Bell Park, making history by becoming the youngest swimmer to cross Lake Ontario. 
Carr was welcomed by fans and well wishers at 8:58 p.m. local time Sunday, marking the end of her grueling 52.5-kilometre swim that started in Niagara-on-the-lake on Saturday evening.
