Incredibly difficult swim. That's very impressive that she could train her way up to it. 

Inspirational.

Chambers began swimming in 2009, after a case of acute compartment syndrome put her mobility at risk,according to her website. Doctors considered amputating her leg, but after two years of rehabilitation, the 38-year-old began to take part in ultra-distance open-water events. She has since completed long-distance swims in open waters around the world, including the English Channel and the Strait of Gibraltar.

Chambers is the fifth person in history to finish the Farallon swim.

Wow, only four other people EVER have completed this swim. It's even more impressive!
