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.
