Jersey swimmer wins international award

Wendy Trehiou

A Jersey swimmer has received world open water swimming recognition after winning an award from a prestigious international organisation.

Wendy Trehiou claimed the 'most adventurous swim' award from the Marathon Swimmers Federation.

The award is recognising her achievement of becoming the first person to swim solo from St Malo to Jersey last year.

Wendy's achievement in completing the swim from St Malo to Jersey was nothing short of world class. I am sure I join everyone in the local swimming community in offering her our congratulations in receiving world recognition for this outstanding achievement.
