I began my open water swimming journey in January 2019. Little did I know what an amazing and unique sports this is. In Lima, Peru, an iconic competition is Grau Route, 5.5km. I have completed it twice, it is a challenging competition due to the water currents, but very exciting. The longest distance I have swam is 6.5km.

Running is my second favourite sport. Since the pandemic started I have swam and ran inconsistently but I look forward to increasing my distances & resistance in 2023.
