Robbie's remarkable resilience
This weekend’s Mt Martha Australia Day Swim (MMAD) will mark a momentous occasion for peninsula local, Robbie Peime.
More than a decade ago his life was turned upside down by a motorbike accident which left him in a wheelchair, however that hasn’t stopped him achieving some remarkable goals, including formidable Ironman challenges and competing in triathlons.

Freely admitting he hasn’t “rolled his arms over in while”, Olympic medallist Andrew Lauterstein will jump in the ocean on Saturday to compete in the Portsea Swim Classic.
Commencing from Fisherman’s beach, the 1.5km swim will see participants head west around Police Point along the coast and finish at Jarman Oval at the historic Quarantine Station in the Point Nepean National Park.
