Congratulations to Y11 student Fynn Evans-Ocharern who last Friday completed a solo swim crossing the Rottnest Channel.
A rather unique achievement, in that the ‘out of event’ crossing was completed from the island to the mainland, Fynn made light of the trying conditions to achieve a very creditable time of 5hours 59 minutes. Over the last few months Fynn has been trying with her coach, Claire Evans, and world champion marathon swimmer Shelley Taylor-Smith, often swimming 25km a week to prepare herself for the event.
Fynn reports that she once she has finished Y11 and 12 she has set her sights on completing either the Manhattan Island Swim or a crossing of the English channel – maybe even both!
We applaud her dedication, effort and commitment on what is a remarkable achievement.
