    The Costa Rican swimmer, Rocio Mora, 49 years old, became the first Costa Rican and the fourth Central American in history to finish the English Channel Crossing.In this way she completed the three tests of the Triple Crown of Aquatic Marathons: English Channel, 20 Manhattan Bridges and Crossing the Canal de las Catalinas.

    Most difficult swim

    “I´m very happy, it was very hard but we managed to finish successfully, swimming much more than expected, the currents were difficult, the waves not only moved me up and down, but to the sides. The first five kilometers and the last ten kilometers were the most difficult. It was the most difficult swim I’ve ever gone through,” Mora said.

    Rocio’s unofficial time was 11 hours 4 minutes, covering a distance of 41 kilometers with 500 meters.Let us remember that the linear distance at this point of the Canal is 33 kilometers but due to the tide, the distance is extended.Mora prepared with the help and experience of her coach Kurt Niehaus, who has been a benchmark in our country in triathlons and open water.
