Congratulations to A squad swimmer and Junior Coach Sophie who swam the Serpentine for the second year running on 16 September. She completed the 1 mile swim in 27 minutes and 30 seconds, beating her time from last year by 1 minute 4 seconds. It was a freezing water temperature of 15.4 degrees C on the day!
97 out of 1737 (overall field)
31 out of 997 (all females)
5 out of 88 (16-25 age category)
Sophie says it is a fabulous event to attend and she would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to try open water swimming. Do catch her poolside and have a word about it if you’d like to know more and start training for next year.
A top-100 finish is a remarkable achievement – well done Sophie.
