67 individuals in the history of open water swimming have successfully completed the Triple Crown of Open Water Swimming – across the English Channel, across the Catalina Channel and around Manhattan Island. From Ireland to India, the UK to the USA, Spain to South Africa, marathon swimmers are flocking to the English Channel and Catalina Channel…and trying to get accepted by the Manhattan Island Marathon Swim in order to have a shot to join the exclusive club.
But there are two Triple Crowners who have enjoyed the trio of swims so much, they just had to do it again.
Antonio Argüelles of Mexico (1999 and 2009) and American Tina Neill (2008 and 2012) have completed the Triple Crown two times each.
