“Hi I am Ollie. I first came down to Horseshoe lake when I was 9 years old with my triathlon club, Reading Rascals. I was not particularly good, and I was really scared to put my head under water, because I could not see the bottom and only swam 30-40 meters in an hour. The lifeguards were really encouraging me, so I got better and better. Looking forward to the next session, pushing yourself to see what distance you can achieve overall is just fun. Now I come down to the lake twice a week with my dad and Steve the dog, training for the races that have all been cancelled”
