Chippendale couple Tony Andersen & Gillian McDonald are delighted the Prince Alfred Park Pool is open throughout the winter. They swim regularly as they recover from terrible injuries suffered in a bike crash last when they were hit by a 4WD as they rode along Southern Cross Drive last year.
Riding at the back of a peloton that day, Mr Andersen, 68, broke his back, sternum, clavicle, arm, nine ribs and facial bones when a 4WD ploughed through him and six other riders, four of whom were seriously injured.
“It’s absolutely fantastic that the pool will stay open during the winter because the swimming is really helping with my recovery, especially with my upper body,” Mr Anderson, who’s just getting back on the bike, said after a recent 2km swim.
