Olympic rematch to be held this weekend in UK...

This coming Saturday (13th of September) sees a re-match of the inaugural Olympic 10km Open Water swim event. David Davies, Thomas Lurz and Olympic champion Maarten van der Weijden will be battling for glory in the first "Great North Swim" (, located in the famous Windermere Lake, England's largest lake.
Joining them will be a host of Olympic stars and over 2000 members of the public taking part in a one mile challenge in 14 degree waters. Upon questioning about the upcoming race, van der Weijden seemed very relaxed and was looking forward to the swim in his new blueseventy Helix wetsuit. Our man on the ground, Dean Jackson, will be there taking pictures and giving us a report from the scene.
Will Maarten again reign supreme, will David Davies choose a better swimming line? Will the newly crowned European Champion Lutz execute revenge?
Yes, it's all happening in the north of England...
