Teen Swimmer Completes Journey Around Manhattan


A young woman has accomplished an amazing feat in the waters around New York City.

Angel More competed in a 28-mile swim around Manhattan Island Saturday; doing it all for charity.

As ordinary people spent Saturday morning lazing around Battery Park, across the pier in the Hudson River, the 16-year-old embarked on a grueling journey.

“I’ve been swimming my entire life and I just wanted to challenge myself so I decided to do this,” More said.
