Last week, Swim Smooth Manchester coach Lucy Lloyd-Roach and her team broke the world record as the first ever all female English Channel Medley Relay Team. Lucy, Mel, Claire and Sarah started out from Dover at 11pm on 31st August and completed their channel swim in 12 hours and 17 minutes - an incredible effort. Each member of the team completed 60 mins of either, backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly or freestyle, had 3 hours of "rest" on the boat and then got back in the water to do it all again.
When we heard about this fantastic achievement, we couldn't wait to catch up with Lucy. In episode 25 of the Swim Smooth podcast, we hear from this awesome foursome about their training, channel crossing and recovery from such an incredible challenge:
