Carr ends Lake Erie swim at Long Point

ERIE, Pa. - A 16 year old girl who took on a 75-kilometre swim across Lake Erie decided to end her marathon a little early after consulting with her swim coach and officials.

Team spokesman Aaron Gautreau says Annaleise Carr ended her swim at 4 a.m. ET at Long Point, Ont., a few hours short of Port Dover, Ont., where she had initially planned to arrive around 11:30 this morning.

Gautreau says the swim was still a great success, as Carr raised around $130,000 for Camp Trillium, a childhood cancer support centre.

The native of Walsh, Ont., had been swimming six to eight hours a day to prepare for what she expected would be a gruelling 30-hour swim.

Two years ago Carr swam across Lake Ontario at the age of 14, becoming the youngest person known to have ever accomplished the feat.
