Unable to turn down a challenge, Susan then committed to a solo crossing of the channel between Cottesloe Beach and Rottnest Island (Perth, Australia), a 19.7km swim that took place on 22 February 2020. It was a tough challenge, but Susan managed to complete the distance in just under ten hours (9:55), alongside her swimming buddy, Sue Jones.
Susan is now training for a solo crossing of the English Channel in September 2022.
When asked what motivates her to keep testing her boundaries, Susan says, "Stepping outside of my comfort zone has made me a happier and more resilient person. I'm now committed to helping others confront their own fears and achieve personal goals so they too may experience this incredible sense of this freedom."
