Madness Against Malaria is reaching an exciting conclusion


Madness Against Malaria is down to two teams. The Beantown 'Skeeter-beater Tetra-peaters have won the competition 3 years running and are aiming to make this their 4th title. This year they are up against newcomers Nests Shop who have been one step ahead of the current champions all through the final with lots of back and forth.

As I write the two finalists have raised over US$ 5,000 between them in the final round alone! That is enough to buy nearly 1,200 long lasting nets, protecting 2,400 children, on average. Currently Nests Shop have the edge, but only by 27 nets!

With only one day to go who will prevail? Check out the teams and lend them a hand!

Now is the perfect time to swim and help in the fight against malaria!

There are only a few weeks to go before World Swim 2010 starts; a great time to register your swim, tell friends and family and get involved.

Join the Speedo Elite Athletes

Among those swimming are:  Michael Phelps (USA), Libby Trickett (AUS), Rebecca Addlington (GB), Eamon Sullivan (AUS), Katie Hoff (USA), Natalie Coughlin (USA), Liam Tancock (GB), Emily Seebohm (AUS), Filippo Magnini (Italy)

"I'm honoured to join Speedo in an effort to organise a swim around the world in support of World Swim Against Malaria and help stop the spread of this deadly disease. I hope that we encourage as many people as possible to join Team Speedo on June 25th to complete the round the world swim for this great cause." Michael Phelps

"Malaria remains one of the world's most deadly diseases, and that's why it's important to do all we can to help prevent it. Getting into the pool on June 25th is a really simple way to save lives, so I hope that as many people as possible get involved with World Swim Against Malaria, claim their Speedo swimwear, and raise as much money as possible for this worthy cause." Rebecca Addlington

"When it comes to our participation in World Swim Against Malaria, it doesn't matter how fast I swim, Emily swims, Michael, Natalie, Katie, Rebecca, Filippo swim... each of us count as 1 person swimming. If YOU swim, that's one more towards the target of one million swimming. This is a great cause. Great if you will swim too." Libby Trickett
