She says that she used swimming as a means to cope through cancer treatment.

It was intended that Sarah Thomas had to travel a total distance of nearly 129 kilometers (80 miles), but because of the strong tidal current in the world and tidevandsbølger she came almost to swim 209 kilometers (130 miles).

Thomas celebrated his record at Dover with champagne and chocolate, reports the BBC.

She swam nonstop for 54 hours and 10 minutes.

She wrote ahead of the rekordsvømningen on Facebook Saturday that she had been waiting for two years on this swimming.
