Gertrude Ederle – First Woman to Swim the English Channel

Historical footage of Trudy’s Ederle’s Channel swim. The song Blackbird was a hit the same year. As it is with many open water ultra endurance swimmers, they usually have a song stuck in their head. Could this have gone through her mind on the day of her swim so long ago?
