On Saturday 28 January Alfie Glendinning and Minnie Wayman both competed in the UK Cold Water Swimming Championships at Tooting Bec Lido. With no wet suits allowed and the water an extremely chilly 1.5o c speed was of the essence! First up was Alfie in the boys u14 years 30m free which he won in 21.73 seconds. Minnie was next in the girls u14 years 30m free which she won in 19.07 seconds. Alfie then had another swim, racing in the boys u14 years 30m head up breaststroke which he won in 33.20 seconds. After a dip in the hot tub and some hot drinks Minnie competed in the mixed 4 x 30m freestyle relay with swimmers from Felixstowe, Diss and Leiston. They finished a highly creditable 5th out of 31 teams in a time of 1.26.83. The combined upper age limit for their category was 160 years, they came in at a combined age of 61 years, winning a special prize as youngest team. A hugely enjoyable day, they’re both looking forward to the next Championships in 2019!
