Congratulations to all those who swam in the London Open Water event today at Greenland Dock in the East End.
Kingston Royals swimmers competed at the 2014 ASA South East Region Open Water Swimming Championships at Westhampnett Lake, 19th July 2014. Read on for a report, the results and picture gallery.
Damien Bryan - new KRSC coach - held the first of a series of Summer open water training sessions last Wednesday evening, 29th May, at Ferris Meadow Lake in Shepperton. The lake was a chilly 13.5 degrees but all our intrepid swimmers braved the cold waters and even had to dodge a duck with her chicks! The club are planning to use Damien's vast international open water experience to develop a programme of training sessions with a view to preparing a number of our swimmers for the upcoming open water season. So - watch this space!
KRSC's Alex Panayides had another fantastic swim at the weekend as she won the Great London Swim on 26th May 2012 leaving World Champion Kerri-Ann Payne to take second place. It was the first of the series of British Gas Great Swims and took place in London’s Victoria Dock. Alex completed the one mile race in twenty minutes and six seconds in choppy conditions which made it tough for all the swimmers. She was first female and third overall.
Kingston Royals swimmer, Alex Panayides, travelled to Eilat in early April to compete at the 10k Fina Marathon World Cup. The event attracted a top-class field with competitors from over 30 countries including world champions Thomas Lurz and Ana Marcela Cunha as well as many swimmers due to compete at the 2012 Olympics. Alex took an impressive two and a half minutes off her PB and finished in 26th place - a great achievement against a largely 'professional' field of athletes. In fact the course proved too tough for some competitors with four of the female swimmers failing to finish.
