Olympian to join swim

AN Olympic silver medallist will take part in the Henley Mile swim on Sunday.

Keri-AnnePayne, who won silver in the 10km open-water event at the Beijing Games in 2008, leads a field that also includes GB swimmers Tom Allen, Fern Davies and Caleb Hughes.

As well as racing, she will be offering advice to swimmers and showing off her medals. The Henley Mile, which is part of the Henley Swim series, is a one-mile race along the royal regatta course. It starts at 9am at Temple Island Meadows with a second wave at 11.30am.

There are also several other races including a half mile swim for adults and three shorter races for junior swimmers.
