“Aerodynamically, the bumblebee shouldn’t be able to fly, but the bumblebee doesn’t know it so it goes on flying anyway”
Imagine if the bumblebee was taught how flying is supposed to be done. That it’s supposed to be flapping its wings up & down, because that’s what aerodynamics says. It wouldn’t be able to fly. Instead, what it actually does is go back & forth. A way that is unique, yet successfully provides the bumblebee with increased ability. For the past twelve weeks, my team has implemented a philosophy around movement, in a way that has been a fascinating learning experience and ultimate experiment for me. Today I raced in the Murray Rose Malabar Magic Ocean Swim with over 400 others, and was pleased to move through the water well for me. 2.5km in 40:40 with no wetsuit. Flattered to receive the Swimmer with a Disability award & place 4th in my age group. Thank you to the organisers for providing access for all to compete.
