CITY of Milton Keynes swimming star Emma Joyce concluded what’s been a fantastic open water season with victory at Brogborough Lake.

A total of 177 swimmers took part in the one mile swim, with both wetsuit and non-wetsuit competitors setting off in the same wave.

Emma, 17, finished as the first junior/lady in a time of 16 minutes 11 seconds – seven seconds clear of her nearest female rival.

She finished sixth overall, but once again with the water temperature a very chilly 14 degrees, Emma was the first non-wetsuit finisher to complete the course.

Emma’s success at Brogborough Lake comes on the back of her finishing as the first female home at the Olympic Distance 10k open water swim at Bray Lake near Windsor.
