Great swimmers don't retire .. They just do it out of the limelight.

Great swimmers don't retire .. They just do it out of the limelight.

"Mark burst onto the International swimming scene, at the age of 16, representing England at the 1986 Commonwealth Games, he went on to represent his country for 23 years and became Britain’s most decorated male swimmer. Throughout his remarkable career, he has won 51 major international medals; competed in 5 Olympics, been 6 times World Champion, 11 times European champion, 2 times Commonwealth champion and broke the World record 8 times. He was also chosen as the flag bearer to lead out Team GB at the opening ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympics." ... from markfoster.co.uk

The Barefoot Runner

The Barefoot Runner

'The Animal' who wants to compete barefoot.

"In the institute they called him 'Matao'. They laughed at him because he was different. It was funky. "That at age 14 a boy would prefer to take advantage of his free time to go to run in the mountains or swim, it wasn't normal in a small town like mine," recalled Iván Raña, triathlon world champion in 2002 and three times Olympic" Full article: http://ow.ly/etOL308iNWb

Famara Total trail run

Famara Total trail run

A damn fine trail race that just shows how beautifully tough #Lanzarote can be ... In it's second year, with in excess of 600 runners and the addition of a 42km (as well as a 7km, 14km and 28km) the Famara Total trail run is already starting to build a reputation as a race that should be on every trail runners 'wish list'.

Lucy Biddlestone at Castle Series Triathlon 'The Bastion'. I love the juxtaposition of an ice cream seller plying his trade on a typical day in Britain, whilst Lucy is flying along on her bike in cold wet weather.

Swim like a butterfly, sting like a bee....

Swim like a butterfly, sting like a bee....

 

Sam is training for his next lung-busting race the Cyprus to Israel swim - a 15km swim across the Dead Sea.

He said "It's going to be a big challenge, not only because of the distance but the Dead Sea is 10 times more dense that normal sea, which is great for bouyancy but you can't swim unaided without a full face mask. The salt will burn your eyes and throat."

Stopping every 2.5km, they will take off their mask and rinse with fresh water.

Good luck Sam.

July 2016, Lanzarote.
