THERE will be hot competition to decide the Cold Water Legend during the fourth annual Euroz North Cottesloe Cold Water Classic Swim raising money for the Leaukaemia Foundation at North Cottesloe beach this Saturday.

“This great community event started when little Mimi Anderson got diagnosed with leaukaemia aged three and her father and I started it up to make something positive of the situation, and now 4 years on we have raised $100,000 from it,” organiser Ceinwen Roberts said.

Mimi is now recovered, but participants in the Swim’s kneeboard, stand-up paddle, run and swim legs are still contribution to leaukaemia research.

Participants can do a 1.6km return swims, paddle or SUPs between a course set out with buoys, and there is a 400m swim for children

However, to be crowned the Cold Water Legend the toughest and fittest will tackle three legs of the course in each discipline, after choosing whether to contest in the watercraft section on a kneeboard or a SUP board

They will have to cover 4.8km in total.

Previous Legend winner Patrick Hazard (31) will recontest his title when races start from about 9.30am.
