Freddie and Didge will be racing on Saturday 21st April 2012 in Eilat, Israel.
Freddie in 16-19 Male AG Sprint is making his debut outing for Belgium and starts alongside 5 British lads and 13 Israeli’s. Didge has moved up an age category since the Worlds in Beijing last year, now competing in the 30-34 Female AG Sprint, she’s up against 5 British girls and 4 Israeli’s.
It looks like they both start at 7am in a mass beach start in calm open water. The water temperature is currently 24oC so it’ll be a non-wet suit swim. Both Freddie and Didge are great swimmers so they should both get a good start to their races. Good luck guys 🙂
Eilat is 1-hour behind Dubai so as the team finishes the sea swim down at JBR they’ll be kicking off 🙂
