Bhakti Sharma Speaker Biography


In 2015, Bhakti Sharma became the first Asian woman and the youngest in the world to set a record in open swimming in Antarctic waters. She swam 1.4 miles (2.3 km) in 41:14 minutes, at a temperature of 1°C (34°F), breaking the record of Lynne Cox (USA) and Lewis Pugh (Great Britain). Sharma has swum in all the five oceans of the world, besides swimming in or across eight other seas and channels. She was awarded the Tenzing Norgay National Adventure Award in 2010.

What open water swimming taught me about resilience

Dive into the deep with open water swimmer Bhakti Sharma, as she shares what she learned about resilience during her personal journey from the scorching heat of Rajasthan, India to the bone-chilling waters of her record-breaking swim in Antarctica and her courageous crossing of the English Channel. "In the middle of the ocean, there is nowhere to hide," Sharma says.
