Double Olympic gold medallist and Speedo Ambassador, Rebecca Adlington, took some time away from her training recently to spread the word about the Swimathon Weekend 2012. Rebecca encourages everyone to get in the pool and be part of the world’s biggest swim!
Taking place between April 27 to April 29, the Swimathon offers you the opportunity to swim various distances for charity from 1 mile for Sports Relief through to 5Km for Marie Curie Cancer Care. If you are interested in doing your bit for charity you can enter the event here.
Team Goggleblog are swimming three Swimathons of 5Km each (200 lengths of a standard 25m pool). Our youngest team mate is just 9 year old Archie Price who will be attempting to swim the 5Km distance for the first time all by himself. We wish him luck.
