The Holy Shrine of Swimming

It feels immensely empowering to be in the vicinity of Repton School swimming pool. Why? I don’t know, it’s just some kind of magic.

Perhaps is has to do with the extremely sturdy buildings in the area. I was going to take some pics of the buildings and walls that look like fortresses and castles rather than village houses but then the rain came down so hard that not even the best bus shelter ever made me take my camera from my bag.

 

Willington is between Derby and Loughborough and Mel Marshall holds her swim camps there. It doesn’t surprise me at all that such a vicinity produces such excellent coaches and swimmers like Adam Peaty.

You soak up the atmosphere and just feel good, almost invincible, wonderful, like everything is going to be alright and nothing can happen to you.

It just feel good and right to be there.
