Today FM's Matt Cooper makes splash as he eyes mile-long swim

Matt Cooper and Melanie Nocher

THE season of new year's resolutions is upon us -- but veteran radio broadcaster Matt Cooper is putting his money where his mouth is.

The Today FM radio host, who has vowed to learn how to swim properly this year, made waves when he took to the pool alongside double Olympian and European medallist Melanie Nocher (above) to promote a new challenge set by Swim Ireland.

It launched the inaugural all-Ireland 'Swim for a Mile Challenge 2014' -- which challenges members of the public to compete in a national event to swim for a mile. It says a mile of swimming is the water equivalent of finishing a marathon.

Swim Ireland will provide a free training programme, support and advice for all those wanting to get involved. For more information visit www.swimforamile.com.
