On the weekend more than 200 eager swimmers swam in Perth’s Swan River for the 14th and final round of the 2016/17 Swimming WA Open Water Swimming Series. The inaugural “Suburbs to City” swim saw competitors dash 1.3km from South Perth Foreshore to Elizabeth Quay.
While the conditions were rainy and cool, there was no dampening the excitement at the start line as local swimmers eagerly welcomed Swimming WA ambassador and three time Olympian Libby Trickett, who flew to Perth to be a part of the event.
Tahlia Jensen finished 6th overall in the event and first female overall in the under 18 category.
This saw Tahlia at the top of the leader board and was overall OWS U/18 season winner receiving the OWS medal, entry to all rounds of 2017/2018 OWS season and $250 cash.
Well done Tahlia what a great result!
