Gertrude Ederle

Today we feature a photograph of Ms. Gertrude Ederle. Why would we show her picture you ask? It was on this day (August 6) in the year 1926 that Ms. Ederle became the first woman to swim the English Channel, and she did it faster than ANYBODY had ever done it before. So, we tip our hat to this amazing athlete.
