Melissa Gorman, who won the race and Swimming Australia’s Open Water Swimmer of the Year award on the same weekend, commented, “I just got back into training in the last weekend and it was a little bit choppy out there, but that is open water swimming for you. [Body Science Great Australian Swim Series] is a great concept and introduction to open water swimming for people in Brisbane and a fun day.”

Trent Grimsey, who is back on track after a season in which he unexpectedly had to sit back and recover from illnesses, won the men’s division. Well on his way back to health, Trent is featured on Open Water Wednesday this week.
