Orillia Channel Cats Open Water swimmer Flora Haslem recently competed in the Canaqua Sports Welland Canal Open Water 10-kilometre swim.

Halsem completed the swim in just over three hours, placing second among the females and sixth overall.

“I was a bit frustrated because one of the buoys floated off course which caused some of us to swim almost two kilometres extra," said Haslem.

“She held it together well and finished the race strong as ever," noted Channel Cats Coach Tatum Haslem.

Flora is preparing for her next Open Water (3.5 km) swim in Toronto, slated for Aug. 26.
