On this day in Canadian history (September 9th 1954), sixteen-year-old Marilyn Bell became the first person to swim across Lake Ontario. The Toronto-born athlete swam 52 km during her 21 hours in the cold lake. Marilyn was competing in an organized event and was the surprise winner. When she finally crawled onto shore at the CNE ground in Toronto, Ontario, the young Canadian schoolgirl was cheered by a waiting crowd of about 100,000 people.
Marilyn Grace Bell was the first person to swim across Lake Ontario and later swam the English Channel and Strait of Juan de Fuca.
