Massive thanks to @jamesappletonphotography for taking these brilliant photos at @sheppertonopenwaterswim . I’ll be sharing more about why I’ve joined the team and how I absolutely love my dryrobe especially now that I have started doing some cold water swimming!

Keri-anne, who has represented team GB for 12 years hopes to inspire more people to take the plunge and try it for themselves.

At the age of 15, Keri-anne broke the British junior 800m freestyle record. In the year 2006, she started focusing on the open water from the pool. At the 2008 Olympic Games, she won a silver medal for Great Britain in the inaugural 10k Open Water Swim. Besides, she also won world honors in the 10k both in 2009 and 2011. After retirement in 2017, Keri-anne has switched her complete attention to swim coaching.

Speaking about the association with dryrobe, Keri-anne said “My passion will always be in the open water and I love finding new ways to enjoy it, especially in the cold! When dryrobe asked me to join the team it was a no brainer because it’s already an integral part of my routine and kit bag (and should be part of every open water swimmers too). I also really love how much time dryrobe are putting in to ensuring they remain sustainable with a range of eco-friendly products.”
