About Susan Sherwen
I have always loved swimming, loved my bath as a baby and as a toddler I headed straight for the water.
Being in the water is my best happy place
I lived in Taupo till I was 10. The best town in the world so many adventures to be had in and around the Lake and Mountains, just so beautiful.
I represented NZ as a teenager, swimming in Australia at their National and Regional Championships
At 17 I went off to USA to be part of the University of Houston swimming team for a year
I came back to NZ and went to University here
I was part of the first Waikato Women\'s water polo team until I started my family
For the next 20 years I did very little swimming and my health deteriorated
Then I saw the Auckland Harbour Crossing Swim and I haven\'t looked back
Back in my element, water, I am thriving, fitter and healthier than I was 16 years ago when I took the plunge again.
I have swum Lake Taupo (March 2020) and Cook Strait (April 2021). Now I have completed my first (unofficial) ice mile.
So exhilarating and so grateful to be part of such an awesome community of swimmers. It is so much fun.
