Broth­ers in the swim

Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS -

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.
