BLDSA Champion of Champions – Scaling Dam

BLDSA Champion of Champions – Scaling Dam

People often wonder why I love working with kingfishers open water squad, it’s because I never cease to be amazed and proud of our open water swimmers. On the 22nd June Four Kingfisher ladies Maddy Adams, Ellie Knight, Jane Sedman and Alex Sedman travelled to Scaling Dam just north of Whitby for the first ever champion of champion event at that venue. The race is particularly gruelling some may even say cruel in 15degrees! You start the day with a 5 mile race, get out, get dry, feed and go back in for a 3 mile race followed by 1 mile sprint. The sun shone all day and the water was beautiful and flat for the 5 mile, 1 lap into the 3 mile the wind got up and conditions remained challenging for the rest of the day.  Maddie again the only junior to complete this mammoth swim was our first swimmer home 4th overall in the ladies section followed by Ellie and Jane with Alex completing just the 5 mile on this occasion. Hats off ladies you are warriors
