Arbitrary section header[edit]

Lynne Cox swam the frigid Bering Strait separating Alaska and Russia, a feat never before successfully attempted.

Cox documents the years of training and other swimming feats that led to her eventual triumph in the Bering Strait in her book Swimming to Antarctica: Tales of a Long-Distance Swimmer.

Cox recently took a walk along Seal Beach, in Orange County, Calif., to explain to NPR's Karen Grigsby Bates how she trained for many of her swims within eyeshot of the pier and the surfers that hug the coast.

During her swim of the Bering Strait, she crossed the International Date Line -- something Cox says she found metaphorically important.

"Because really, you're swimming from the present into the future," she tells Bates. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 31 May 2004

Note that she swam between the Diomede Islands (2 miles), not across Bering Strait (58 miles). 2 miles is not so tough for a good swimmer. BIL 19:52, 2 October 2006 (UTC)

I think a bridge across the strait will change the world as we know it.. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 08:02, 7 April 2005

Future Tunnel?[edit]

I know about the Bering Strait Bridge article, but Russia's proposed tunnel seems to more concrete. Should this be mentioned here at all? Yubimusubi 04:47, 19 April 2007 (UTC)

In my opinion, add it. --Canadianshoper 23:48, 19 May 2007 (UTC)who made itp??
I agree. (talk) 00:13, 1 July 2018 (UTC)


This article breaks the know political attacks! NoRmIaD (talk) 23:51, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

Locator map?[edit]

Does this need a clear global locator map? A reader requested "specific location" in feedback. -- Beland (talk) 02:26, 30 June 2013 (UTC)

Population, Expeditions[edit]

Nothing about the Inuit people who live there. I'd expect something besides "sparsely populated." Kortoso (talk) 20:54, 3 June 2015 (UTC)

Info on Ice / No-Ice situation[edit]

Would be useful to know the current and historical situation about how many months of the year the strait id "bridged" by ice, or open for navigation. Has this changed significantly with global warming ? What was the probable situation at the time of the presumed pre-historic migration from Asia to America.RB-Ex-MrPolo (talk) 03:44, 3 September 2015 (UTC)

3rd paragraph should also describe treatment of Russian citizens if they enter the Russian coast of the Bering Strait[edit] (talk) 17:03, 28 March 2017 (UTC)
