Open water swimming champion Bhakti Sharma set a world record by swimming 1.4 miles in 52 minutes in one degree temperature in the Antarctic Ocean. Bhakti  became the first Indian woman to achieve this feat, beating the record of British open water swimming champion Lewis Pugh and American swimmer Lynne Cox. She is the youngest and the first Asian girl to have achieved this success and has now conquered all five oceans of the world. Bhakti had been pursuing open water swimming for the last 10 years, swam across four oceans, eight channels and seas, which itself is a world record.  In 2010, she was awarded the Tenzing Norgay National Adventure Award.
