In what he has described as his "hardest race ever" Sam Sheppard
completed his first 10k World Cup event in Cozumel, Mexico over the
weekend. Against a strong current and fast race pace, Sam was the
first of the Australian team to complete the race in 35th position.
The race attracted some of the greatest contemporary open water
swimmers such as Thomas Lurz, Richard Weinberger and Alex Meyer.
Sam is already thinking about how to build upon this experience.
Well done Sam, we are very proud of you.
