Boy of 9 swims the Tay

Mika Mitchell decided to follow in his father’s footsteps and try a long distance swim. After completing his swim he said: “It’s a lot different from swimming in a pool – it’s a lot colder but I definitely want to do it again. I was really tired afterwards, but that hasn’t put me off.” His father Robert kept a watchful eye from a support boat, but he needed no assistance, completing the crossing in just less than three quarters of an hour. With this experience under his belt he is looking for another watery challenge.
