Lizzie De Bono
Since joining Swimtrek in 2007, Lizzie has swum extensively around the Mediterranean Sea and now feels more at home swimming in the deep blue of Sardinia and Gozo. Lizzie loves to travel and believes that seeing the world at sea level is the only way.

Swim history before SwimTrek

I have swum since I was a child and used to compete at both a local club level and for my school. I first completed my lifeguarding qualifications when I was 15 at a Surf Club called Fairhaven which is located on the Great Ocean Road in Victoria Australia. I now belong to Coogee Surf Club, in Sydney Australia and am a volunteer lifeguard there over the Australian summer. I have also been swimming in the ocean races that run around Australia since I was a teenager. I have swum in races from the Pier to Pub to the Rottnest Island swim. I have coached kids to swim since I was at Uni and now coach private lesson's at Wylie's Sea baths (Sydney). I have also swum the Straights of Gibraltar, a duo crossing of Rottnest Island and The Big Bloody Swim (11.2km)

Most memorable swim moment

Any swim where I slip into that rhythm that feels fluid and feels like I can swim forever, it normally happens over a longer distance and sometimes even occurs during a training session.

Top swimming tip

RELAX, keep turning those arms over and don't think about it too much. And Zoggs Predator Goggles, I can't live without them.

Interesting fact about you

I like practising yoga, and think it is very complimentary to all other sports...
