Bhakti Sharma

The Conqueror of 5 Oceans and 7 Seas of the World


Hailing from a small town in Udaipur, Bhakti Sharma is an open water swimmer and Asia's first woman to have conquered 5 oceans and 7 seas of the world.

In 2015, she became the youngest in the world to swim in the freezing waters of Antarctica for 2.25 km in just forty minutes.  Her journey of making it big amidst the naysayers who constantly belittled her for being a girl is inspirational.

Bhakti was just 16 when she swam the English Channel in 2006, which covers a staggering distance of 36 kilometres, which she completed in 13 hours and 55 minutes. 

At an age when kids can barely walk, Bhakti had started swimming at two, and today her stamina, strength & mental focus reaffirms the fact that practice does make a man perfect.

She has launched a professional career in education and motivational speaking to inspire the next generation of girls and young women. She started the ‘Swim to Educate’ initiative in India and is now expanding her message of inspiration to span from India to the U.S.
