Half Century Comparisons Down Under

Half Century Comparisons Down Under

In a follow-up to yesterday’s Open Water Source research on the average time of women vs. men in the open water, it looked at the time differences of members of the Rottnest Channel Swim older group of swimmers – the members of the Half Century Club.

It appears that the average time for women over the age of 50 who have successfully crossed the Rottnest Channel is 8:13.06, just a bit behind their male counterparts who complete the swim on average in 7:59.34.

In this case, the average age of the women was slightly higher than the men: 56.7 years for the women on average and 56.1 years for the men on average.
