Brothers in the swim
SPEARWOOD brothers Michael and David Abdo will join hundreds tackling the Port
to Pub swim on Saturday. The event starts at Leighton Beach, with competitors journeying on a 19.75 km swim route to Rottnest Island. Michael took part in the swim in 2016 and was keen to tackle it again this year with his brother. “(Dave has) never done any open water swimming like this so I hope he will enjoy the challenge,” Michael said. “At the end of the day it’s all about us both getting into the water and enjoying ourselves. If we both cross the swimming line that’s a win in my book.” There is also a 25km solo ultra-marathon option for advanced swimmers.
