In addition to Paul Lemmon's lastest accomplishments (see below), he can now add one more - 3km Open Water Swim - first place!!
PAUL Lemmon has taken out two world titles in an outstanding performance at the FINA World Masters Swimming Championships in Italy.
Lemmon, of Ettalong Pelicans, won the 45-49 years 200m backstroke on June 11, before wrapping up the week-long event with victory in Sunday's 3000m open water swim. The two golds were the highlights of a six-medal haul from as many events for Lemmon.
The accomplished swimmer and surf lifesaver finished second in the 400m and 800m freestyle, as well as the 400m individual medley. Lemmon also earned bronze in the 200m individual medley. Ettalong Pelicans public relations officer Gordon Ferguson said club members were delighted to hear of Lemmon's results.
"They're fabulous results and show the very high standard of athlete that he is," Ferguson said. Lemmon is enjoying a break before returning home.
