Congratulations Rebecca Smith ‘British Gas Great Swim Series 2011’

October 14th, 2011 | Posted by: admin

Kings Security Systems would like to congratulate our very own Rebecca Smith for completing this year’s ‘British Gas Great Swim Series’ and raising £1,000 for Cancer Research.

Rebecca completed five 1 mile swims across the UK in Salford, Ipswich, Windermere, London and Glasgow which she funded herself to raise money for this very worthwhile cause. Highlights of the event will be shown on Channel 4 starting this Sunday at 7am.

10,000 people participated in the regional swim with 2,000 completing the series. Rebecca’s best performance was 291st out of 10,000 swimmers in Windermere. Her best time was 26.41 which she achieved in Glasgow, where she finished 113 out of the 2,000 that swam on the day.

Rebecca, who has now overcome her fear of the wetsuit, commented “This is a fantastic event and has a great atmosphere, open water swimming is so liberating and to raise £1.000 for Cancer Research was worth all the effort. Not sure what the challenge will be for next year but thinking along the lines of a triathlon!”
