About your host

I have always trained in swimming. I spent 12 years on the Gold Coast as a surf life saver and since moving to Melbourne have trained in distance swims. I am well versed in the safety, nutrition and management of coldwater and distance swimming, and am proficient in first-aid, and life-saving. My circle of friends includes many English Channel swimmers and elite swimmers in distance swimming.
