About and Contact

IMG_7123My name is Paige Christie and I am a U.S. Marathon Swimmer. I am sponsored by GRRRL Clothing, BRL Sports Nutrition, Vermont Peanut Butter and VOMAX.

In 2015, I was the co-captain of the Smith College Swimming and Diving Team and Smith College 2015 NCAA Woman of the Year. On August 24th 2014,  I successfully completed a solo crossing of the English Channel in 12 hours and 55 minutes. I was one of less than 100 American women to ever accomplish this feat.

I have been swimming competitively (USA swimming year round) since I was 7 years old (16 years!) and have always thrived on distance events.

This June 27-July 3rd 2016 I will be attempting to swim the 120 miles of the Hudson River, in an event called 8 Bridges. If completed I will be the 10th male or female, youngest, and first person from MA, to ever accomplish this daunting feat.

Thank you for checking out my blog, and thank you to my family and friends for the love and support!
