CommentIt is difficult to pinpoint one person as a trainer. I had help coming from all over the world! I couldn't have done this swim without the help and support of Cliff Golding who was on my boat that day and did the most important job (besides swimming) of feeding me. One cannot forget Freda Streeter as well who assigned me hours and hours of training in Dover Harbor and it is this training that I feel really prepared me for the swim. From Switzerland I had the full support of my swim team colleague Esther Iseppi who was also on the boat that day.
