Steve Kilbey

Australians may be more familiar with Steve Kilbey as the enigmatic singer and songwriter from the Classic rock band The Church. However, Steve is absolutely passionate about swimming - especially in the ocean pools of Sydney. It was great to chat with Steve on his home turf at Wylie Baths. He loves the fish in the pools and talks of his shift from addiction to Heroin to his addiction to cold winter swims in the Ocean.

Denise is a veteran of 2 Rottnest Island swims, NZ open waters swims (with Orca in tow)and the English Channel.

Jennie Bucknell

A well known swimming coach at Prahran Pool and Harold Holt pool, Jennie Bucknell speaks of her career in the pool including a highlight in 2012. At age 45 Jennie qualified to line up against Australia's elite swimmers and swim to qualify for a place in the London Olympic team. Although she didn't make the team, it's such an outstanding achievement to even get into the pool and compete at this level. Especially since some of the other swimmers were as young as 15!
