On Saturday 9 November, Nicole Rinquest participated in the annual Ashanti Mile swim. It’s an annual event usually held at Ashanti Wine Estate, but this year was moved to Calais Wine Estate. It is a charity swim, and funds raised go to the Athlone House of Strength, which is a shelter for abused women & their children in the Paarl area.

This year, there were about 90 swimmers in total. Nicole was number 70 out of the water and completed in a time of 38 min 40 seconds. What we’re absolutely delighted to hear is that she achieved a 2nd place in the u/19 category. We congratulate her on this very fine achievement.
