Local becomes 3rd Canadian to earn Triple Crown

Jessi Harewicz, who over the past winters has spent many long hours training indoors at the UBC Aquatic Centre, has become only the third Canadian to complete the Triple Crown of open water swimming.  On June 1, 2019 Jessi spent nearly 9 hours swimming 42 kilometers to circumnavigate Manhattan. This feat, together with the successful crossing of the English Channel (August 8,2017) and the Catalina Channel (July 3, 2018), has earned her a place of distinction within the swimming community.

Congratulations to you Jessi on your commitment to setting a goal and doing what is takes to achieve it.
