What a weekend of swimming in New Zealand.

Congrats to all the amazing athletes who took part in Challenge Wanaka at the weekend. #inspiring #Championsoneandall

A BIG shout out to Simon Olliver. He conquered the Foveaux Strait yesterday completing NZ's triple crown (Cook Strait, Taupo and Foveaux). Simon is now one of NZ's most accomplished marathon swimmers.

A massive congratulations to Marty Filipowski . Marty swam the Cook Strait www.stuff.co.nz/sport/89575007/marathon-swimmer-marty-filipowski-nabs-the-100th-crossing-of-cook-... . Marty becomes the 100th swimmer ever to complete the swim. He was guided by NZ's most accomplished open water swimmer and legendary marathon swim coach and manager; Philip Rush

On Friday Katrina Price and Mike Cochrane completed an epic 155km staged swim around Lake Taupo. Wow. And Mike... hasn't stopped ... blue lake and Kawau Island (you get the #swimaddict award dude)

Saturday the oceanswim series was in Rotorua at the blue lake oceanswim.co.nz/ their next stop is Christchurch on 4 March for the Christchurch Crown.

There is still a lot more swimming on the calendar. The crew at fitandabel.com/nz-swim-coaching/ are back at it. We have group swims Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Some 121 slots remaining. Info and bookings on the website info@fitandabel.com
