After my swim, more members started to trickle in ... in particular some of the SLSC members/medallists from the Cold Water Swimming Championships who competed in Latvia last weekend!
This is the spontaneous reaction I got from Katherine when I congratulated her for winning a silver medal at the Cold WAter World Championships in Latvia (which
took last weekend)
Spider women Mandy (coming back from a stint in the sauna after her morning swim)won 2 medals too ...
As did Sue ... who had also already been for her morning swim
ok then .. get get together for a photo .. all smile ..!
Ann also came back with a medal (gold for Ann -
she even defended her title from 2 years ago!
Well done Ann !
here she is in action - she only take a breath on the right ...
so I couldn't catch her on her "breathing side !"
which would have made for a nicer photo!
Angus full of patriotism (spot the union jack cap!) swimming for england ..
yes .. you can laugh Ian ...
Mandy, showing off her leggings ... shame I had already decided to take a tight shot of her face .. if only I had known she was so proud of her leggings I would have obliged!
OK, time to see this medals - silver for Katherine
let's take a better look at it ...
by the way, Katherine is swimming the channel in a relay this summer
and Sue's bronze (she won her medal in the same race as Katherine)
Amazing how long the ribbon is :)
A delighted Sue!
These medals are truly lovely -
here a closer look at Katherine's silver medal!
