Ann Reid achieved her Two Million Metres on 24 May 2015. Ann may have swum her second million metres, but she has travelled a significant number of kilometres around Australia and even to the United States to get to the pools she swam in to achieve this award!
Ann commented about her achievement … “My second million metres took just under 4½ years (after my first million) and 449 pool visits to achieve; swimming as little as 500m or as much as 4300m in a single session. These sessions included many NSW swim meets, two National Championships (Sydney and Hobart), postal swims, endurance swims and club training sessions. The majority of swims were at Tuggeranong and various NSW Masters clubs’ home pools, but I regularly swam in Albury, Wagga and Wodonga (work related trips), Nunawading (visiting family in Melbourne), and also tried out the Byron Bay pool, the Adelaide and Launceston Aquatic Centres and the San Mateo and Santa Rosa College pools in California during this time.”
The Vorgee Million Metre Awards is a great way to motivate yourself to keep coming to the pool, so why not start recording yours now!
