Their race, at the end of August, makes them the first-ever all-female team to swim a medley relay across the Channel.
Melanie Holland, Claire Thorn, Lucy Lloyd-Roach, and Sarah Hempenstall are known as Big Rick’s Chicks, part of British swimming club Big Rick’s Swim Team.
To qualify as a medley relay, they each had to swim a different stroke. They swam in 1-hour chunks and rested on a support boat in between swims.
The 34km swim took them 12 hours and 17 minutes, arriving in France just before noon on 1st of September.
