Beth French

From wheelchair bound to world class athlete, self employed single mum, Beth French, stretches the horizons of her own possibilities, tackling incredible feats of endurance and adventure.

She suffered with ME from the age of 10 and by 17, she was in a wheelchair. Overcoming debilitation, she forged a path to ultimate health her own way, studying around the world, including time spent ordained in a Thai Buddhist monastery. In 2012, she swam the English channel and was back in time to put her son to bed. She became the first woman to swim the notorious Kaiwi- Channel of Bones, in Hawaii twice and the first person ever to swim from Cornwall to the Isles of Scilly. Earlier this year, she was named as one of the World Open Water Swimming Association’s top 50 adventurous female swimmers.
