WOW trio compete at Loch Lomond swim event

Three of the club’s WOW swimmers took part in the Go Swim Loch Lomond event last weekend.

Julie Calvert and Jacqueline Simpson competed in their first open water event at Loch Lomond at the weekend. Claire Lamont also completed the aquathlon.

The GTC members are participating in the six-week WOW (Woman Open Water) course being run by GTC as part of a Triathlon Scotland programme.

Julie and Jacqueline enjoyed the 750m Loch Lomond event. Julie was first female vet and Jacqueline was third female super vet.

Jacqueline said: “We were both petrified before the event, but once we started we both enjoyed it and we were pleasantly surprised with the results.

“The WOW sessions have been great, showing us the ropes and giving us plenty of tips and advice about open water swimming.”

Claire also praised the coaches for their tips and advice.
