  • How should I prepare to swim longer distances?

*The “Triple Crown” designation indicates that Melissa has completed three historically important swims: The English Channel, (33.7 km) the Manhattan Island Marathon Swim, (48.5 km) and the Catalina Channel Swim (32.5 K). Basically, it means that Melissa is an animal.
