Quick Q&A with Founding Member Sian Richardson

Crutches don’t stop Sian from swimming!

How did you get into outdoor swimming?

I could swim but not very well. Had always been a splasher, never heads down. I had done some marathons and ultras in my thirties so decided that a triathlon may be a good idea and learnt to swim. Tracey and I met on North Beach in Tenby on the start line of a swim event. We were both on the verge of crying with fear and caught sight of each other, wearing identical wetsuits and shaking. We got talking, swam, then found each other at the end and chatted. Did all sorts of events together over the next few years culminating in Ironman Wales (Tracey finished and I didn’t).
