Lynne Cox swam the frigid Bering Strait separating Alaska and Russia, a feat never before successfully attempted.
Cox documents the years of training and other swimming feats that led to her eventual triumph in the Bering Strait in her book Swimming to Antarctica: Tales of a Long-Distance Swimmer.
Cox recently took a walk along Seal Beach, in Orange County, Calif., to explain to NPR's Karen Grigsby Bates how she trained for many of her swims within eyeshot of the pier and the surfers that hug the coast.
During her swim of the Bering Strait, she crossed the International Date Line -- something Cox says she found metaphorically important.
- Note that she swam between the Diomede Islands (2 miles), not across Bering Strait (58 miles). 2 miles is not so tough for a good swimmer. BIL 19:52, 2 October 2006 (UTC)

I know about the Bering Strait Bridge article, but Russia's proposed tunnel seems to more concrete. Should this be mentioned here at all? http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601082&sid=a5OJJzlp0xwM&refer=canada Yubimusubi 04:47, 19 April 2007 (UTC)
