OMs breaking the ice
Univ’s sporting prowess will sink to new lows next week as Old Members Melissa O’Reilly (2002, Modern Languages) and Joseph Kotrie Monson (1999, Modern Languages) take part in an Ice Swimming competition in Siberia.
Maria is a double world champion in the sport and now runs extreme cold water swimming adventures. She has been coaching novice Joseph, a criminal lawyer and legal commentator, for next week’s event – his debut ice swim.
The pair will be getting very chilly in aid of Centrepoint, the UK Homeless Children’s Charity, and the Maria Centre, a local charity for Siberian orphans.
