Tour de Tori - conquering the English Channel

After 2 years of training and more than $53k raised for Multiple Sclerosis, @torgorman set off from Dover bound for France. The delights of modern technology allowed her fan base to track her 14 hour 12 minute crossing, stroke by stroke. Nothing great is easy. Here's the highlights.


  1. Inclement weather kept Team Tori waiting for a very frustrating 9 days before departure. But then, the call was made....
  2. There was plenty of support from family, friends and strangers alike
  3. From one champion to another
  4. Without further ado, it was time to jump in and do it!
  5. Social media management was handed over to Bel (Tori's sister)
  6. We all settled in for the long haul
  7. Who needs Wimbledon or the Tour de France, when #tourdetori is on Twitter?
