Created with the inspiration from a pioneering British female river swimmer, Agnes Beckwith.
It is a tale of courage and survival as a tribute to the swimmers of yesteryear. Beginning in 1875, when at the age of 14, she dived from a boat at London bridge and swam five miles to Greenwich. Soon she was being billed as ‘the premier lady swimmer of the world’. Her impact on female swimming was tremendous; she opened the door for female swimming as we know it today with bravery and determination.
Looking out to the vastness of life, capturing that glorious moment when you have picked yourself up, dusted yourself off, grabbed your swimming cap and goggles, ready to ‘jump into life’.
