Jo Jones: If you never try, you’ll never know

In 2020, Jo Jones took on the Bristol Channel, following in the footsteps of Kathleen Thomas, the first person to cross the Channel almost 100 years earlier. But things didn't go to plan, and with the open water swimming season coming to a close, a broken boat and bad weather put the swim under threat. Jo talks through the lessons learnt over her journey, from the resilience needed to bounce back after disappointment, to how her mindset of 'just enjoy the swim' led to her setting the fastest time for the crossing, which has caused her to reevaluate her own abilities.
