Channel swims excite me and scare me at the same time,” says Kimberley Chambers on the eve of leaving for Japan for the Tsugaru Channel. “This is why I love these swims. These are incredible experiences. And all I can do is my best.

I’m really looking forward to visiting Japan. I haven’t been there since I was 15 on a school trip. I studied Japanese for 5 years in high school, and wish I had continued my studies while at Berkeley. Anyway, just enjoying the journey.”
