01.08.2005 Dover - Bea Kunze, member of the Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team Germany, started her first attempt to cross the English Channel.

This morning at 9 am CET Bea started in Dover for her first Channel crossing. When she started with the final training sessions in Dover harbour 4 weeks ago she felt quite uncertain if she can do it. The change from the pure and calm Bavarian lakes around her hometown Munich to the rough sea waters was hard for her. But after the last long swims of 9 and 12 hours around Dover confidence came back.

Bea we all wish you good luck !!
