Nee help for lighting surreal image idea

As part of my now 6 months old lose weight & get fit campaign, I swim every morning at 5.30 am. This morning it was grey and raining heavily, pre-dawn about 6am. One of the guys in an adjoining lane joked with the pool owner that he was getting wt. The owner is a wag & promptly got one of the sun table umbrellas & held it over him & ask was that better, diddums?

But it gave me an idea. What if I could get a pretty parasol and perhaps a wig and get on of the young ladies who train every morning to swim along holding it up?

The pool is a standard 50m on, an pre-dawn is lit by 4 big floodlights along on side. Suggestions for lighting are needed. I only have one flash unit which can be fired (manually) off camera. My idea was to sandwich 2 shots, a time exposure of the swimmers training so they would be blurs in the background, overlaid by a clear image of my swimmer with parasol.

Any suggestions/ideas/referrals to anything vaguely similar welcome.
