He’s taking his job as Minister for Sport seriously, it seems.
Leo Varadkar is a regular participant in triathalons and runs – and now he has taken to the water to try to encourage more people to take up swimming.
Swim Ireland’s ‘Swim for a Mile Challenge’ is a swimming initiative set up to encourage people in Ireland to get back into the pool. Swim Ireland coaches have written swimming programmes that will enable those who can swim a little to swim a mile in just 12 weeks.
Free coaching sessions are available in a number of pools around the country. For more information log on to www.swimforamile.com
