Woman Swims Isle of Wight on Percy Pigs

Well done to Anna Wardley, she's the woman who swam around the Isle of Wight. I've been to the Isle of Wight. It's not great but it's not like you should go to such lengths to avoid it. You don't have to swim around it. Step on it, it'll be fine.

Anna managed the trip in 26 hours, 33 minutes and 28 seconds. The problem with a round trip is that you end up where you started. You could've ended up in exactly the same place if you just went to the shops and came back 26 hours, 33 minutes and 28 seconds later. But it's not about that, it's about achieving something. The thing is though, she's not the first person to do it. It was back in 1984 when someone swam round the island. Are we just doing all the old records again? It makes sense. All of the good things have already been done for the first time, maybe we should wipe the slate clean and start over. Can I be the person who discovers gravity this time please?

Apparently the key to doing this impressive swim is eating Percy Pigs sweets. Anna said, "I think in a way that's the secret to my success."

That's great news because it means if I ever want to swim round the Isle of Wight, I may not have done any training, but at least I've had plenty of Percy Pigs in my time. So I'm halfway there already.
