6:32 pm
and -- i mean, you know, they say it's a solo swim but it's not. this is my crew. and everybody got me across. >> two boats were alongside kim the whole swim. but the rules were she couldn't touch the boat. she couldn't touch the crew members. the only way she could get food from them was the crew members had to throw out a container attached to a rope with food inside and she was able to eat from that but to make matters worse and to make the journey even more difficult she said for most of the swim she couldn't even keep the food down so a very tough time. she really had to dig deep but she said she somehow found the strength to do it. her mom was watching her the whole time. she flew in from new zealand to see her daughter do this difficult swim. she says the rest of the weekend she is going to be laying low and likely getting a lot of catch-up time talking with mom at home and likely spending a lot of that time in bed. back to you guys. >> you know, christian, juliette and i got meet her a
