09 Oct 2012Real heroes never give up!
After having her dreams dashed a stones throw from France by Fog, Fionnuala Walsh comes back and makes her dream come true.
When things don't go to plan, you have two choices: give up or try again. It's what one does with setbacks that makes us who we are, and this is where true heroes shine through.
This morning Fionnuala Walsh slipped into the cold Channel waters to complete her dream, which was dashed two months earlier by fog, a couple of hundred metres from French sand. She kept the swim low profile, but swam a brilliant swim today, and finished in 15 hours and 26 minutes.
Fionnuala is an example to us all. We all congratualte you wholeheartedly.
