Abriella Bredell (11) has completed a seven and a half kilometre swim on the  Robben Island Canal. Bredell has become the youngest female to swim the Canal.

Bredell who’s from Jeffrey’s Bay in the Eastern Cape completed the  distance in three hours 20 minutes.

Two years ago, she decided to tackle the gruelling cold water swim from Robben Island to Big Bay near Melkbosstrand. This in an effort to raise money for those less fortunate.

To date Abriella has raised more than R82 000 for the Back-a-Buddy Campaign, that will be donated to the Red Cross Children’s Hospital.
