Triple Crown of Open Water Swimming[edit]

The Triple Crown of Open Water Swimming is the sport of open water swimming's equivalent of the Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing. Members of the Triple Crown of Open Water Swimming have successfully completed three marathon swims: (1) across the English Channel between England and France, (2) across the Catalina Channel between Santa Catalina Island and the Southern California mainland in the United States, and (3) the Manhattan Island Marathon Swim, a 28.5-mile circumnavigation around New York City. It is known as the Triple Corona in Spanish.
