Arbitrary section header[edit]

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.

"Because really, you're swimming from the present into the future," she tells Bates. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.240.57.4 (talkcontribs) 31 May 2004

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 think a bridge across the strait will change the world as we know it.. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.176.245.102 (talkcontribs) 08:02, 7 April 2005

If you want the page deleted put it on VfD, this is neither the proper median nor method. If you continue to remove peoples comments you will be blocked. -- Cat chi? 20:00, 9 May 2005 (UTC)

Future Tunnel?[edit]

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)

In my opinion, add it. --Canadianshoper 23:48, 19 May 2007 (UTC)who made itp??

Locator map?[edit]

Does this need a clear global locator map? A reader requested "specific location" in feedback. -- Beland (talk) 02:26, 30 June 2013 (UTC)
