GEORGE SWIMMING NEWS - Local Fish Eagles Masters swimmer, Tanya Livingstone Osborne (48), was the first female over 40 to cross the finish line at the recent daunting Jendamark Bellbuoy Challenge in Gqeberha.
She placed 27th overall in a time of 1:20:23. This 5km open-water swim in the Indian Ocean is rated as one of the toughest ocean swims in the world. Swimmers took off from Pollock Beach and had to swim around the bell buoy and back.
Osborne has a remarkable sporting career, having earned her SA Junior Springbok colours in biathlon in 1989.
She has won many gold, silver and bronze medals at various SA masters swimming championships and other events throughout the years.
"Fish Eagles Masters Swimmers are indeed fortunate to be able to reap the benefits of her experience and enthusiasm," says chairperson Cheryl Griffiths.
