A few weeks back, Twitter was ablaze as Simon Whitfield mentioned he would be in Toronto for a few days and was looking for a club to swim with, so of course there were immediate offers from multiple clubs from throughout the city vying for the chance to swim with such a great Canadian triathlete.
Our members and Board did a stand up job bombarding him with reasons to join us, which made for an entertaining Twitter exchange (see screenshots below), and he mentioned he would try to make it out. What suspense! Although he was unable to make it the following morning, but being such a stand up guy, Simon messaged one of our Board members that he would try to join us the next time he was in the city.
At this mornings swim, Mike Carling greeted Simon, who asked if he could swim with us. Not recognizing him right away, Mike remarked that he should speak to Annette first to see if there were still additional spots open for registration. Luckily, Mike quickly realized it was Simon and invited him to join us for the morning! (We'll excuse you for that Mike, it was 6:30am after all!)
