Wegman prepares to Swim With The Fishes again by swimming across Lake Couchiching August 8th 2015

Orillia Ontario: Wil Wegman of Bradford Ontario, might be better known for catching fish than swimming with them but it’s exactly the latter that he will be doing once again on Saturday August 8th in the fish-filled waters of Orillia’s Lake Couchiching. “I’ll be swimming in my third Sun City Swim event across ‘Cooch’ and I’m really excited about it. In 2013 it took me 1 hour 35.5 minutes (placing 17th) and in 2014 I placed 15th and it took me 1 hour 29.3 minutes. I really don’t know if I can better that time, but I’m swimming laps 4-5 days a week just to give a good try” said Wegman.  One of the factors that will definitely influence everyone’s time however ... is wind; and Cooch is known for its rough water. All proceeds from the Sun City Swim in 2015 will benefit the Child Advocacy Centre of Simcoe/Muskoka... supporting abused children
