Watch Davina attempt to conquer her life-long fear of open water swimming as she trains for the BT Sport Relief Challenge. Accompanied by Comic Relief challenges trainer Professor Greg Whyte OBE, Davina pushes through the pain barrier and plunges into the life-threateningly cold lake for her first ever session swimming in open water.
Speaking after the session, Davina said “I wish I could tell you that there was a part of it that I enjoyed and there was a part of it where I got tuned into some Zen like state but I’m not there yet. All I wanted to do was get my bit done and get out. It is so unbearably cold.”
