Motivational Speaker and “The Greatest Ultra-Marathon Swimmer in History”

Chloë is a marathon swimmer and globally sought-after motivational speaker who holds multiple marathon swimming World Records. She has become well-known for pushing the boundaries of marathon swimming and what the human mind and body can achieve.

Described as the greatest ultra-marathon swimmer in history, Chloë was inducted into the International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame in 2016 as its youngest member and was awarded the prestigious ‘Poseidon Award’. She was also awarded the 2014 and 2015 Marathon Swimmers Federation ‘Solo Swim of the Year (Female)’ and has received 24 awards and plates from the Channel Swimming Association for her English Channel achievements.

In 2020, Chloë swam her 37th crossing of the English Channel, beating the Men’s World Record of 34 channel crossings and swimming a total distance of 1,258 kilometres. She has coached over 150 people to swim the English Channel and uses her platform to advocate on behalf of domestic violence victims. She was named one of Marie Claire’s Women of The Year in 2020 for her record-breaking 35th Channel swim and her advocacy work.

In the following year, Chloë set a new record for swimming the English Channel after completing her 44th crossing. She swam for 10 hours from Kent in south-eastern England to the French commune of Audinghen, beating her idol Alison Streeter’s record of 43 crossings.

Chloë also holds the record of the longest unassisted ocean swim for swimming 124 kilometres from South Eleuthera Island to the Bahamas and conquering a non-stop triple crossing of the Channel in 2015. This feat took almost 37 hours to complete. She has been recognised by numerous swimming organisations, including the International Swimming Hall of Fame (ISHOF), International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame (IMSHOF), Marathon Swimmers Federation (MSF) and the Channel Swimming Association (CSA) for her outstanding achievements.

Chloë is a firm believer that wellbeing, confidence and perseverance are foundational in chasing our dreams. She knows the trials and tribulations involved in launching into a journey towards a goal and has had plenty of experience with failure. However, Chloë also knows how to channel these experiences into a more powerful drive and is keen to show her audiences how they can do the same.
