Zut Alors! Paris Gay Games 2018

In August I swam in the 2018 Paris Gay Games, held every four years. A surreally amazing week – beautiful people, blazing, scorching sunshine, fabulous food and fairytale-like surroundings…. Swimming events were held in the Piscine Georges Vallerey; its retractable roof allowing us to top up our tans in between events. Highlights (for me) included my first shortcourse 1500m (60 lengths of a 25 meter pool), a monster 5k swim in the Vaires sur Marne Leisure Centre (the venue for the 2024 Olympic rowing events) and of course the fabulous Pink Flamingo…

Post 5km swim. Im amazed I was able to stand up!
