Swim England Open Water Championships 5th August 2019

A team of 4 Step Rock swimmers were selected to take part in the Swim England Open Water Championships at Rotherham on Monday the 5th of August.

A huge achievement to qualify, Anna S, Isla T, Fraser and Rowan all swam brilliantly, holding their own against the best open water swimmers in Britain.

Adding to the excitement was a ‘no wetsuit’ rule due to the water temperature being 21 degrees. Our rockers therefore had their first ‘skins’ swims, a totally different experience and arguably much tougher.

However, true to form, they smashed it. PBs for Fraser, Rowan and Isla and a very near miss for Anna putting them all in a great position for the Scottish National Open Water Championships.

Well done to them all!
