Sickness in Sunderland

Why are Swimmable Rivers important?

While it is true that you can technically swim in any body of water, an incident during the World Triathlon Championship Series highlights the significance of having clean and safe waters for swimming.

In Sunderland, triathletes  who swam in contaminated water ended up falling ill, with 57 of them experiencing symptoms of sickness caused by E.coli. This incident serves as a prime example of why we need to prioritize the establishment of Swimmable waters to ensure the health and well-being of athletes and anyone else who enjoys swimming.
