Sian wins solo section of Port to Pub swim
SIXTY years after the first person swam from North Fremantle to Rottnest, hundreds took to Leighton Beach to attempt the swim themselves in the inaugural Port to Pub swim.
Among the 700 swimmers who took part was South Perth’s Sian Williams, who won the 20km solo category in a little under four hours and 58 minutes, beating the next best swimmer by 18 minutes. She said she felt a bit lonely swimming by herself for most of the race.
“I was nervous about the unexpected and how my body would pull up,” she said.
“I only seriously started training six weeks ago.”
Bradley Smith took out the 25km swim in five hours, 34 minutes.
