Famously furious

June 12, 2008

I’m again in the local news, standing up for swimmers! The Mercury quoted me, the News Shopper called me a furious swimmer. I really like that.

And nearly furious I was two days ago at Downham Pool where at 9:40 pm, 20 minutes before end of play and just as I was getting into the rhythm two lifeguards started winding up the lane floats . Standing up mid pool and pointing at my wrist I yelled them a loud and clear “Oi!”. The lifeguard looked very puzzled, then lifting his hands half-way up he walked back and put the floats that he had just released back into place. Two swimmers nodded at me in approval and went back into swimming their lengths, their lanes still there.
