Freezing Out the Competition

by Alex Steelsmith

“Chilean woman [Barbara Hernandez] becomes first to swim 1.55 miles in Antarctica…
[Her swim is] believed to be a new world record…”

Shivering, quivering,
Barbara the natator
set a new record with
breathtaking speed.

Swimming with icebergs, the
Chilean woman was
chilly indeed.
