Great North Elite 5k Swim

Windsor swimming club had three athletes take part in the Great North Elite 5 k swim on Sunday 15th June.

This was Becky Dutfield and Nicole Ryan's first experience at racing this distance.

Both girls had a great race with Becky finishing 7th in the Junior age group, a year down and Nicole finishing 5th in the youth age group.

Team mate international Open Water swimmer Lucy Campbell also competed in the 5 k swim. Like the other girls Lucy was racing for selection for the junior Europeans. Lucy just missed out on selection for this team by 2.4 seconds.

From the 5 k swim Lucy impressed British swimming and they have now selected her to race in Portugal next weekend to see if she can gain selection for the senior Europeans.

WSC wishes her luck and also looks forward to the national open water race on Sunday 3rd August with, Nicole Ryan, Becky Dutfield , Albert Karavis and Lucy Campbell taking part.
