Marathon Swimmer Becomes First Woman to Swim Around Staten Island, a 37-Mile Feat | NBC New York

During the middle of the night on July 9, marathon swimmer Leslie Hamilton voluntarily jumped into New York Harbor to complete her next big swim.

She says she has swam in those waters plenty, and already knows what you’re thinking.

“People were like ‘Oh she must have a third arm or three eyes. I was actually completely fine. I didn’t feel sick after the swim,” said Hamilton. “I made sure my tetanus shot was current.”
