Cath Pendleton, The Merthyr Mermaid
Her story was captured by BBC Wales for a documentary about ordinary people achieving extraordinary things, titled “The Merthyr Mermaid” and it is still available to watch on BBC iPlayer BBC One.
She really wants to be a great role model for all those that are anxious about dipping their toes in! She often heard to say “To make me happy, just add cold water!”

In relation to open water swim events and challenges Cath is hoping to finish the Ice Sevens over the next two years, as Covid has delayed everything. She still has South America, North America, Asia and Oceania to complete.
