Heidi Gan possesses that elusive and powerful trifecta of incredible athletic ability, intellect and determination; and she chose to excel at open water swimming, which until recently many didn’t even realise was a sport. Open water swimming, also known as marathon swimming, is swimming up to 10km in bodies of water like lakes, rivers, dams, channels and the sea. It has been an Olympic event since 2008 and part of the FINA World Aquatics Championships since 1991.
