Olympians Heading To The Midmar Mile

Olympians Heading To The Midmar Mile

Similar to last year when 13 Olympians competed in the world’s largest open water race, the Midmar Mile, Olympic medalists are starting to announce their participation in the South Africa classic.

Swimming World Magazine’s World Open Water Swimmer of the Year and 10K world champion Keri-Anne Payne will return to her country of birth to defend her crown. She will compete with bronze medalist Cassandra Patton, silver medalist David Davies and fellow fast teammates Katy Whitfield, Charlotte Wooliscroft, Daniel Fogg, David Carey and Tom Allen.

The British team will face a tough German team of Nadine Pastor Reichert, Christian Reichert and Alexander Studzinski, who will all be knocking heads with the 2009 champion Riaan Schoeman and 2009 world championship 5K bronze medalist Chad Ho.
