About Tiffiny Quinn
Irish sea swimmer and recent Ice swimmer, I am happiest in the water.
My qualifying 500m in Armagh at 0.8 degrees was the hardest thing I’ve done, I only got through it through stubbornness and a determination to not quit before my dear pal Gus Cooney in the lane beside me.
The 1Km at the Irish National Championships at a balmy 4.5 was a much easier affair as I knew what to expect and I had an amazing support team.
Ice Swimming is about preparation, removal of self doubt and a trusted support team.
It tests you completely but you come out the other side elated and better aware of your capabilities. It puts work dramas into perspective, if you can swim a 1km under 5 degrees you can probably get that report done in time!

#1 reason to do cold water swimming, you can eat more cake!
