Marathon swim momentos

I have just opened up a new page on my research website, showcasing marathon swim momentos. At the moment, it's got some swim tattoos, including this one from Julie Farrell, plus a lovely block of wood housing pebbles collected from Channel swims.


I'm going to be adding more as they come in - do get in touch if you have an interesting picture to add.

From an aesthetic perspective, I think they're beautiful and fun; from a research perspective, I think they're significant because they show not only how meaningful how marathon swims are to some individuals, but also that the swims (and their momentos) have a wide range of meanings and are deeply personal.
