Swimmer touches three provinces

-

Marilyn Korzekwa has successful­ly completed a long-distance swim across the Northumber­land Strait to Prince Edward Island and back again Sunday — touching all three Maritime provinces.

Korzekwa, 58, of Hamilton, embarked on the 34-kilometre swim at around 7:45 p.m. Saturday.

She departed from the Amherst Shore of Nova Scotia for Prince Edward Island, then doubled back alongside the Confederat­ion Bridge.

According to her blog, she finished in New Brunswick around noon after swimming non-stop for almost 17 hours. She has also swum Lake Ontario and the English Channel.
