Swain Continues Lake Champlain Swim

A Vermont man swimming the length of Lake Champlain has made it past the half-way point. Christopher Swain began his 125-mile swim late last month in Whitehall, New York, and plans to finish in Quebec in a couple of weeks. The environmentalist says he was motivated by the high levels of E coli bacteria in the lake across the street from his Colchester home. He's been swimming six hours every day, has made stops along the way for community events and school visits, and expects to swim ashore in Burlington today. Swain swam down the Hudson River earlier this summer. He spoke with Todd Moe about his Lake Champlain trek so far.  Go to full article
