Back in the Catalina Channel
Catalina Channel Swimming Federation reported that Tina Neill, a former All-America from the University of California Davis, completed a 10 hours 37 minutes crossing of the Catalina Channel doing backstroke. Neill, who did a double crossing 3 weeks ago, also crossed the English Channel doing backstroke in 2005 when she finished in 13 hours 22 minutes. Back in her home state of Minnesota, the Governor declared her swim day, Tina Neill Day, as a great tribute for her hard work.
