The Total Immersion in the English Channel is a fast group of older swimmers from America, England, and New Zealand – top-notch competitive swimmers – who will combine their collective skills and talents this summer in an English Channel relay. A few of them got together in London for a joint training session this past week.

Their international bonds are forming.

The members of the Total Immersion in the English Channel or The EC6 team include former English Channel record holder Christof Wandratsch, masters 1500m world record holder Kirsten Cameron, US Olympic Trials qualifier Steve West, All-American masters swimmer Bernie Zeruhn, and British national masters champions Andrew Chamberlain and Dave Warren. Its coaching consultant is Terry Laughlin with sponsorship by Total Immersion and Elivar Sports Nutrition.
