16-year-old Derby girls swims English Channel - Newport Dispatch

“She started out from Samphire Hoe beach in Dover England at 9:38 a.m. and set foot on Wissant Beach in France at 11:48 p.m. “That was a swim of a lifetime,” Rivard said. “I have dreamt of this for as long as I can remember. It was better than I could have ever hoped. I am so grateful for this adventure.”"
