CMAC Dive Team competes in Mekong Swim 2014

On Sunday the 27th April, the CMAC Dive Team participated in the annual Mekong River Swim to compete with some 120 entrants to cross the Mekong just north of Phnom Penh.

In February 2013 none of the team could swim with any proficiency, but thanks to the intensive training schedule with their Golden West Humanitarian Foundation Dive Technical Advisor Robert Rice they were able to compete with the best swimmers in Cambodia. The event consisted of a 800m crossing of the Mekong, competing against currents, waves and each other. The team each beat their personal bests for 800m by at least 3 minutes and received very respectable times.
