Spar Ladies River
On 16th February
six intrepid team swimmers participated in the 90th
Annual Spar River Mile Swim.
This event was formerly swum in the Red
House River, but due to increased pollution it has
been relocated to the Sundays River.
There were a total of 341 women from 8 to
65 years in age who participated in this year’s
event; so it was no mean feat for our team
swimmers to complete the swim.
This year the wind was blowing downstream,
so the water was very choppy, that coupled with
the heat, and many contestants made for a tough
done to Leticia du Preez, Jordan Fischer, Emma and
Liza Goodes, Abby Vos and Danielle Walker on their
The Spar Ladies Mile
swimmers with their medals at the end of the race.
