Georgia Amison Takes Bronze At The Ocean Man World Championship

HUUB sponsored Open Water Swimmer Georgia Amison went through to the Ocean Man World Championship Final in Benidorm on 16 October and came away with Bronze. 

Georgia took silver at Swim Serpentine this year and has had a great season despite being blighted by injury.

The World Finals set off from the ‘Mal Pas’ beach in Benidorm with over 500 swimmers of all ages taking part. There were three distances, 9.3km, 5.5km and 1.5km and the participants were split into world qualifier swimmers and amateurs, male and female categories.

 

The 9.3km ‘Oceanman’ distance was the course that Georgia took which went out and around the Isle of Benidorm before heading back to shore.  Rebecca Santos took gold in 2:21:11.  Rebecca had already taken gold at Lake D’Orta which is where Georgia placed 4th and qualified for the finals.  In silver position 9 minutes later was Camilla Montalbetti, with Georgia coming in soon after to take bronze.

 

Georgia is 19 and already well accomplished as an Elite Open Water Swimmer.  She lives and trains in Leicester and we are proud to have her as part of the HUUB family.
