Description
Trudy Ederle didn't learn to swim until she was seven. But once she hit the water, there was no stopping her. She loved to swim, she was talented, and she was determined to be the best. At the age of fifteen Trudy won her first big race. Two years later she qualified for the 1924 Olympics in Paris and won three medals for the U.S. team. By the age of eighteen Trudy had set twenty-nine U.S. and world records. But what she planned to do next had never been done, at least not by a woman. She wanted to take on the most difficult swim of all time: the twenty-one miles of choppy, cold water that separates England from France. And she would do it faster than any man. In her historic fourteen hour swim across the English Channel, Trudy set a world record. She defied those who said it couldn't be done. And with the courage and endurance that was typical of everything she accomplished, Trudy Ederle became a symbol for women everywhere.
