Local swimming demi-god (Dion Wooodborne’s label - see quote below) & former 10 hour channel swimmer John Dickerson made one of his sporadic forays into the pool at the beginning of the week to terrorise me ("kom swaer" after the 5th 200m at 2min 30sec). Mileage fell off a bit after that - got to work on the consistency again.

"I had altered my stroke on the long arm extension of Otto Tanning and the roll of the shoulders from John Dickerson, two demi-gods of the swim world, who both have stories of the channel." http://www.hughtucker.co.za/dion/updates.php
