Think Michael Phelps has endurance? Check out the story of Jennifer Figge, the first woman to swim across the Atlantic Ocean solo. She left the Cape Verde Islands off Africa's west coast in early January, and next walked on land almost a month later in Puerto Rico. But, she's not stopping here. Figge plans to keep on swimming until she reaches the British Virgin Islands in early February. You can read about her swim across the Atlantic Ocean in this Denver Post article written by Associated Press writer Danica Coto.
