How the Melbourne Cup is like an ocean swim

Today we have the race that stops a nation, and as much as we’d like it to be the Pier to Pub, Bondi To Bronte or Jetty To Jetty, it’s the Melbourne Cup.

It’s actually a super busy time of the year for me, as when I’m not teaching ocean swimming, I work in the racing and sports betting industry.

It’s an odd mix (pun intended), but it keeps the dream alive.

When you think about it, racing in the Melbourne Cup is actually a lot like an ocean swim event.
