Male And Female Superfish in Byron Bay

Male And Female Superfish in Byron Bay

Ky Hurst was king of the SuperFish at the 2.2K Byron Bay Winter Whales Ocean Swim Classic in a classic Australian ocean swim. The Byron Bay Classic also offered a Mini Swim as an introductory fun event.

Ky said, “It was anything but easy though because [Codie Grimsey and Brendan Capell] were on my back all the way to the beach. I couldn’t relax for a second because they came on really strong. Codie is a great up-and-coming swimmer who led for the majority of the race and Brendan is a pretty high-calibre athlete too. I hadn’t done too much training for this, which made the victory all the more gratifying.”
