Guided by two escort boats and embraced virtually by thousands of friends, family and online spectators, New Zealand Kimberley Chambers added another feat on her impressive, but unlikely, swimming resume.

Chambers, a former ballerina, became the first woman to swim from the Farallon Islands to the Golden Gate Bridge today, completing the 30-mile swim in 17 hours 12 minutes. Simon Dominguez, a friend and fellow swimmer, summed up her effort, "She made it. It was an inspirational swim that Kim had to dig deep to complete."

For more information, visit 
Chamber's Facebook page and her entertainingly inspirational blog (Kim Swims).

Her history from the operating table to the Golden Gate Bridge is told below:
