The Simon Fraser University Swim Team took the opportunity to have a friendly snow-swim challenge, where two individual teams raced in the snow by “swimming” typical competitive strokes.

Members from both teams raced back and forth, tagging each other in and snow-swimming different strokes throughout the challenge.

Ultimately, Team Two took the ‘W’, but cheating may have been involved.

With more snow in the forecast this week, we’re hoping for a rematch.
