Captial Summer Sports Fest — Lake Burley Griffin Swim — 21 January 2011

Event report from
Caroline Makin

As part of the Capital Summer Sports Fest, which is an annual triathlon weekend in Canberra, there was a swimming event in Lake Burley Griffin on the evening of  Friday, 21 January 2011.

There were two distances on offer: 400m swim or 1.5km swim, and this year Anne Smyth, David Bale, Caroline Makin and Kristen Leydon all took part in the 1500m lake swim at Rond Terraces, Canberra.

Well done to all our swimmers, and in particular newbie Viking, Kristen Leydon for her first ever open water swim!
