Ironman star and 7h54m IM Austria athlete, Christian Kramer (see http://christian-ritter.de) is hoping to come and do a 5-6 week stint with us building up to the Mandurah 70.3 and IMWA races. He's seeking some accommodation during this period (preferably fairly close to the pool), so if anyone can assist and help out, please contact Christian direct on: email@example.com
Please be reminded that this weekend we have our 3-day Coach Education Course with 15 coaches attending from all around Australia, New Zealand, the UK and Singapore.
We will be delivering the 1pm Saturday Open Water Skills session at Claremont Pool and would love for as many of you as possible to join us for that as this type of session always works best with good numbers given the drafting exercises etc.
Please be advised that due to bad weather conditions forecast for the 1.8km Cold Water Classic at North Cottesloe on Sunday the organisers have brought the race forwards to 12pm tomorrow Saturday 4th October. Registration is from 11am with a compulsory briefing at 1145am. Good luck! The organisers are really hoping people can still make it as its for such a great cause.
...and if you're super keen you can then make it down to the 1-2pm squad session at Claremont Pool if you can get a little wriggle on! Last week was an awesome session having so many of you down. This will be our last session with our coaches Sinead, Gavin and Lance before they head back to their respective countries. They have had a great time and would like to say thanks for making them all feel welcome!!!
You may have heard me getting all excited about our new Swim Smooth bathers - designed and produced exclusively for us by Way Funky, the manufacturers of the Funky Trunk and Funkita swimwear ranges which many of you are familiar with for their bright colours, longevity and awesome fit! They look and feel awesome and if you're lucky might make your abs stand out like Renee and Forbes' above!
We have a limited number of all sizes available in the men's trunk (pictured above) and for the ladies a 1-piece and 2-piece version. For sizing charts please see:
Cost is $55 for the mens version and $75 for the women's version. Please select "USA/CAN/AusNZ/Asia/S.Amer/Africa" from the drop-down as this defaults to FREE shipping until Wednesday next week - wahoo!
Swimwear will be sent from the UK and be with you within 5-7 business days. The UK is where our stock of these items are held, prior to release on the main www.swimsmooth.com next week - so don't delay as they will sell out very quickly!
For any ladies concerned about a mismatch in tops and bottoms of the 2-piece version, please be aware that I will have some spare tops sent over to me from the UK so that we can exchange on the pool deck if necessary. Generally though, most ladies have found that the one size works for both top and bottom.
Here are some more shots - don't delay, order yours today!
