From an two time Emmy Award winning Producer of the "Deadliest Catch" Doug Stanley…
In the spirit of Diana Nyad's recent Cuba to Florida swim, this summer, Jaimi Patrick, a 41 year old endurance athlete will attempt to set a world open water distance record on Lake Michigan by swimming from Milwaukee Bay to Chicago Harbor. It will be a grueling 60 hour, non-stop test of attrition and human perseverance as Jamie braves the inclement weather, cold temperatures, mental exhaustion, and more than 250,000 arm strokes to swim into the record books.
