More Olympic joy for Loughborough swimmer
19 June 2012
Loughborough University swimmer Daniel Fogg has been selected to compete for Team GB in the men's open water 10km marathon at the London Olympics.
It means the 24-year-old will compete in two events because he had already been chosen for the 1500m in the Aquatics Centre.
He will be the only GB swimmer in the men's open water event, which takes place on August 10 in Hyde Park.
Having finished 16th in the 10km marathon at the World Championships in 2011, Fogg is now looking ahead to the London Games.
He said: "I am really happy to have been selected for my second event at the Games. I'm back into hard training after recovering from the FINA Open Water event in Portugal and have been focusing on my first event, the 1500m.
"I'll now sit down with my coach tolook at the strategy for the open water event too, which is a week after the pool swim. It's fantastic to get to race in both events."
