Blog 3405: Open Water success for Chloe and Lauren

Chloe Blaydon and Lauren Wilcox were in Spain at the weekend competing in the OceanMan Open Water event. This was Lauren's first experience at this event and she competed in the 2k event coming home in 12th place in a time of 43.30

.

Chloe swam the 5.8k event in a time of 1.46.01. Once again, as in Spain last year, the dreaded jelly fish made an appearance at the 3k point , swiping her face and nose. She managed to carry on but it did  push her down the pack. However she finished in third place in the Masters Category which qualifies her for the World Championships in Dubai in November.
