Kim Parkes is raising funds for Friends of Swimmers Trust
2020 has been a very hard and difficult year for South Africa and the rest of the world. Just prior to lock down I swam my first 8 mile challenge a new was really inspired by the spirit and comradery that existed during the event. Lockdown descended on us and we could not train. As we slowly came out of the first stage I was privileged to be able to train with Chad Le Clos. I have been lucky enough to watch Chad at various World Champs around the world with my daughter taking part in the water polo section. Always a very exciting experience to see this world champ beat and win against the best in the world. Chad immediately engaged with me and gave valuable advice on all aspects of swimming. What an experience and privilege to be able to swim with this world champion. Look forward to supporting his Swimmers Trust.
