Mike completes his epic Sports Relief swim

Llangollen man Mike Edwards has splashed his way through a tough physical challenge to raise cash for Sports Relief.
 
Mike, former chair of community group Keep Llangollen Special, likes to keep himself fit with regular swimming and cycling sessions.
 
And he had to call on all his reserves of stamina when he took part in a swimathon in aid of Sports Relief in the pool at Wrexham’s Waterworld yesterday (Saturday).
 
Joined by his eldest son Christian, Mike managed to complete 60 x 25m lengths of the pool in 48 minutes, which is a total distance of 1500m or one mile.
 
He said: “This was good training for the Chirk Sprint I’m doing on April 13 where the swim is only 400m, but you also have to cycle 20k and run 5k after the swim!
 
“So far I've raised £60 for Sport Relief, but am hoping for other donations to bring it up to my target of £100. Every little helps!”
 
Today (Sunday) Mike is going along to Ty Mawr Country Park where his grandchildren, James, Katie and Lucy, Christian's wife Alison and his wife Lis are all running the mile event together.
