Meghan Chisholm completes English Channel swim

Swift Current's Meghan Chisholm has successfully completed her English Channel swim, walking onto the shores of France between the tiny oceanside villages of Ambleteuse and Audresselles just after 1:30 p.m. to mark the completion of an over 14 hour swim.

Chisholm began her solo swim at approximately 11:15 p.m. on Monday Saskatchewan time (6:15 a.m., England time) and completed her marathon effort by approximately 1:40 p.m. (8:40 p.m. England time) to become the first Saskatchewan resident to complete an English Channel swim.

Her completed swim was announced by the Channel Swimming Association, but her official time and other details had yet to be confirmed.
