Die erste Frau, die den Ärmelkanal durchschwommen hat, vollständig taub geworden.

Gertrud Ederle, die deutsch-amerikanische Schwimmerin, die erste Frau, die den Ärmelkanal durchschwommen hat, soll vollständig taub geworden sein. Man nimmt an, dass die Erkrankung auf den starken Druck auf die Ohren bei langem Schwimmen zurückzuführen ist.
