Anne Cleveland was inducted by the International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame in its Class of 2010, a recognition of her long career as a marathon swimmer and ambassador. Anne has completed several channel swims - both as a swimmer and as Observer.

After being pulled from the water in her first channel swim attempt at the age of 43 in the Catalina Channel, Anne has come back from that disappointment in victorious fashion in the English Channel and Catalina Channel.

Swimming history: 'Blacks Don't Swim'

To be honest, I just sat there staring out at the water. I couldn’t believe what I had just heard from the woman sitting next to me.

“Look” she continued, “I’m not saying it, but my friends say that black people don’t have the buoyancy to be swimmers.”

There had been studies done in the 50s and 60s that claimed that since black athletes on average tend to have less body fat than their white counterparts, they would be poor swimmers since body fat creates buoyancy. Those studies have since been thoroughly debunked.

But nonetheless here I sat on the dock of my swim club listening to someone defending the accuracy of those studies.
