In a story on Feb. 7 about Jennifer Figge's long-distance swim in the Atlantic Ocean, The Associated Press reported erroneously that she had become the first woman to swim across the ocean. Figge swam only a fraction of the 2,100-mile journey. The rest of the time, she rested on her crew's westward-sailing catamaran. Her spokesman, David Higdon, told The AP on Tuesday that her total swimming distance has not been calculated yet, but he estimates she swam about 250 miles.
