First Icelandic woman to swim the Channel
Last night, the Icelandic National Broadcasting Service showed a documentary called "Shut Up and Swim" about Sigrún Þuriður Geirsdóttir's English Channel swim - the first Icelandic woman to complete it. You can find the documentary on You Tube here. You can click to get the English subtitles. Plus there's a quick snippet of me gabbing on about marathon swimming towards the beginning - my two minutes of Icelandic fame, taken from a video I made when my book came out!
But that aside, it's a lovely film - full of joy (and quite a lot of vomiting). It was a tough, long swim, and it's worth watching just for her celebration when she finishes. There's also some fabulous archive footage of marathon swims in Iceland.
