Vicki Keith 1988 Great Lakes, Canadian Marathon Swimmer
“Vicki Keith was described as an unlikely athlete, not apt to succeed in any sport. In school she was last to be picked for teams. No matter how this made her feel, she refused to accept the negative comments made about her abilities. Today, she is the most successful marathon swimmer in the history of the sport, holding an unprecedented sixteen world records.” Penguins Can Fly
