about

Trudy Ederle loved to swim, and she was determined to be the best. At seventeen Trudy won three medals at the 1924 Olympics in Paris. But what she planned to do next had never been done by a woman: She would swim across the English Channel in fourteen hours and set a world record.

Read from the Book

Trudy wore a red bathing cap and a two-piece bathing suit and goggles that she and her sister had designed. To protect her from the icy water, Margaret coated Trudy with lanolin and heavy grease. The greasing took a long time--too long for Trudy. "For heaven's sake," she complained. "Let's get started."
