Time Out calls it “one of the most bonkers events of the year”. We call it “another day at the pool”.
This year’s UK Cold Water Swimming Championships at Tooting Bec Lido saw 3 teams of 4 TriLondoners doing the 4x30m relays. Our brave swimmers say it was a cool thing to do, us spectators preferred to chill and watch, hot drink in hand.
Fun fact: the water was so cold that Simon had to step on it and heel-kick a hole in it in order to start his swim, and there’s photographic proof of that…
Thanks to Mauricio for the report!
