Physiotherapist conquers world's toughest sea swim

A physiotherapist from Guy’s and St Thomas’ has conquered one of the world’s toughest sea swims, less than a year after swimming across the English Channel.


Samantha Poulsen is the 25th woman to successfully make it across the North Channel. She completed the gruelling 21-mile swim from Northern Ireland to Scotland in 11 hours and 12 minutes.


It is considered to be the most difficult open water swim in the world due to its cold waters, strong currents and high numbers of lion’s mane jellyfish. Samantha took on the challenge to raise money for Guy’s and St Thomas’ Charity.
