It has been an incredible year for American marathon swimmer Sarah Thomas of Colorado.

Not only did she complete a 40 km double circumnavigation of Mercer Island in Washington, won the women’s division at the 17 km Portland Bridge Swim in Oregon, and finished 6th overall in the 16 km Swim The Suck.

But it was her 67 hour 16 minute Century Swim of 104.6 miles (168.3 km) in Lake Champlain between New York and Vermont that led to her winning the 2017 Solo Swim of the Year by the Marathon Swimmers Federation.
