Jess Butterworth won her very first Open water swim event
Jess is an active member of Rugby Junior Triathlon Club & the wetsuit she wore is thanks to a £750 grant award from the trustees of the Heart of England Community Foundation’s Kingscliffe Fund. The Kingscliffe Fund is held, by the Heart of England Community Foundation, for an anonymous Warwickshire benefactor who wants to support small projects for young people in Southam, Dunchurch and Rugby. The Foundation identifies good prospects, and the benefactor makes the final decision.
The junior committee decided to use the grant to provide club wetsuits. and juniors can borrow the suits for a training session or for competition. Jess is a keen swimmer & borrowed a club wetsuit for this event.
Jess competed in the KMSC (Kenilworth Masters Swimming Club) Open Water 2011 event held at Bosworth Water. She completed the 400m distance race in a time of 10 minutes 5 seconds.
