The response from the cake eating…sorry… we mean swimming community; to submit scientific data for our project, has been phenomenal.
From the salt water of Spain…
To training pools of Australia…
To London’s Lido community
To the Lake District…
And Italian fresh water lakes
To the rewards of the Golden Gate Bridge…
…IISCS research fellows have been putting themselves on the frontline – no matter how far they had to swim or how much cake they had to eat.
Yes endurance sports can be tough, but with the right team , physical and mental preparation, anything is possible #nevergiveuponyourdreams.
Amy Sharrocks’ Baked Alaska also brought an awareness of global warming…
And @Loveswimming’s cakes were certainly made with a cause – to raise money for her local swim club.
Of course, early on in a project like this it can seem like there’s an impossible mountain to climb, but one of the great things about the open water swimming community is that there are always friendly people around to inspire and guide you.
“I applaud your perseverance. And thank you for pursuing this pressing issue :)” Thanks Kim!
We’re learning so much from these selfless #swimcake endeavours.
For example the Swim The Eden Wild Swimming Brothers, favoured Batternberg for their epic swim – “With wet fingers the marzipan keeps the cake dry”
