On July 18th – 19th 2006, in 32 hours and 18 minutes, Jenna Lambert, then aged 15, became the first female with a physical disability to swim across Lake Ontario. She entered Lake Ontario in Baird Point, New York, and swam 34 kilometres to Lake Ontario Park, in Kingston, Ontario. The swim, which was predicted to take 24 hours, was extended when Jenna faced strong winds, and waves that pushed directly against her for the majority of the swim. She accomplished this feat despite not being able to use her legs due to cerebral palsy. She did it to raise money to build a new swimming pool for disabled persons in her native Kingston, Ontario. Jenna Lambert also won Athlete of the year in 2007. Her sister, Natalie Lambert, is also a marathon swimmer.
