Henley Swim Bridge to Bridge - 14km Swim
At 8am, on a rather wet Sunday morning, Stefan Wuestner & Simon O'Horo took to the Thames to take part in the Henley Swim Bridge to Bridge event. This is a 14k sportive run every August for swimmers of all abilities.
Stefan and Simon found themselves in the lead pod for the whole swim with Stefan spending most of the time setting the pace at the front. They managed to complete the swim in a little over 3 hours. The swim was close to being called off at a number of points due to the poor weather conditions and threat of storms. However the general decision from the swimmers was to carry on as long as there safety was not in immediate danger.
By completing this swim Stefan and Simon raised £353 for the Charity "Level Water". They would like to pass there thanks onto everyone who sponsored the swim and especially to Coach Olly Espinasse for pushing them in training.
