A TELEVISION presenter and two members of Leander Club took part in the 11th annual Henley Classic swim early on Sunday.
They were among 85 swimmers from around the world who joined the 2.1km race along the royal regatta course, beginning by Temple Island at 4.30am.
The competitors were split into categories depending on their ability.
The course was marked with a giant laser beam which shone down the river to show swimmers the route.
Ski Sunday presenter and former Olympic skier Graham Bell took part in the event for a fifth time. He was in the sporting category for which official times aren’t recorded.
