QA with Marathon Swimmer Paige Christie

By Abby Bergman, Swimming World College Intern

Accomplished marathon swimmer Paige Christie is currently training for the longest marathon swim in the world, the 8 Bridges swim in the Hudson River in New York. Unlike many traditional marathon swims, the 8 Bridges Swim occurs in seven stages over seven days and participants can swim anywhere from one stage to all seven.

This summer’s 8 Bridges swim will take place between June 26 and July 3, with the first stage beginning at Rip Van Winkle Bridge. Christie, who swam the English Channel on August 24, 2014, plans to become the third woman and fifth person to complete all seven stages consecutively. The Smith College graduate and Massachusetts native took time out of her busy training schedule to answer some questions. Click here for more information about the 8 Bridges Swim.
