How Armagh Swimming Club swam to the London Aquatic Stadium

Paula Conroy of City of Armagh Swimming Club tells her story: “We too were inspired by the Olympics despite the many miles to London, so we held an event inviting all local swimmers to help us to swim to the Olympics! Spread over 4 days we managed to get 12 hours pool time and we swam in total 26,880 lengths of our pool (672km) the distance from Armagh to London Aquatic Stadium. The youngest swimmer was 7 and the oldest was 82! It was the most exciting event we have run to date and really raised our profile in the community.”
