Christophers Records Fastest Ever Swim to White Island

By Michael MacKenzie | Posted: Monday October 26, 2020

Emma Christophers made a late decision to enter the White Island race.

A couple of days before the race on Saturday, the 15-year-old Kavanagh College pupil opted to enter the swimming section.

And it is a not an easy decision to make, as swimming out to White Island and back in the chilly sea water is no walk in the park.

But in the end it was a wise decision.

Christophers, from the St Clair club, recorded a time of one hour, 24 minutes which was the fastest swim ever recorded by a female and one of the best times of recent years. (article courtesy of the ODT ) 

Congratulations Emma, awesome work.
