Marathon Swim Stories with Qing Li
|Duration||48 Minutes 14 Seconds|
|Description||18 Aug 2020 interview with Qing Li who started her story off by reminding us that not taking a risk is a risk in itself. Wise beyond her years, Qing's investment in self discovery after a successful, but extremely stressful English Channel swim, is sure to pay dividends in whatever she pursues next in swimming and in life. Qing's positivity is infectious, and I just love her energy, enthusiasm, and emotion. In her own words: I am a lifelong swimmer and owe my success in completing the Triple Crown to the people who believed in my crazy ideas. Swimming the English Channel was a seed of an idea as a teenager that started a deep personal and spiritual journey for me. Starting with the English Channel in 2011 and coming back to round out the Triple Crown and Grand Slam with 20 Bridges - 2018, Tampa Bay Marathon Swim - 2019, and Catalina Channel - 2019. Through this journey I can say that the open water swimming community has truly taught me so much about believing in myself, living with purpose, and letting go of fear. I strive to inspire people from all walks of life to reach just a little higher and push the boundaries of their comfort zone. I love seeing the joy of someone who accomplishes something they never thought they could.|
