How did we do?

F1 Racing - - IN­SIDER -

When it tran­spired that no one on F1 Rac­ing could swim, Si­mon Bowles, art edi­tor of our sis­ter ti­tle What Hi-Fi?, ea­gerly stepped into the breach. “My kids are in the lo­cal Tri club so I of­ten get roped in,” he says. Si­mon came 52nd in his heat, so just missed the cut for the fi­nal. In the mixed ‘wooden spoon’ run-off he was 91st of 99 com­peti­tors out of the wa­ter, rose to 53rd in the cy­cle, then dropped a place in the run to fin­ish 54th.

“I shouldn’t have opted not to wear a wet­suit in the sec­ond race,” he ad­mits. “I was about as buoy­ant as a safe!”
