The Youngest Girl to Row Across the Atlantic Ocean Alone

Katie Spotz, 22, of Mentor, Ohio, rows as a Guyana Coast Guard escorts from behind upon arrival to shore in Georgetown, Guyana, Sunday, March 14, 2010. Spotz, who set out from Dakar, Senegal on Jan. 3, completed a solo journey across the Atlantic Ocean on Sunday to claim a record as the youngest person to accomplish the feat.

Seventy days without using her legs for anything other than rowing movements, and suddenly, Spotz wondered if this might be the first in more than two months that she would fail.
"It was a bit nerve-wracking," Spotz said via phone Sunday night
