Speedo Sprint Series Heat Results

Merrylands will be represented by two swimmers at the Speedo Sprint Series Finals after some excellent swims at this morning's Cumberland District Heats.

Swimming in the 13 years age group, David Wang qualified for the Speedo Sprint Series Finals for the fifth time in six years, qualifying for the finals in three events. He finished 2nd in the 50m Breaststroke, 3rd in the 50m Freestyle and 3rd in the 50m Backstroke, all in new personal best times. He also finished 4th in the 50m Butterfly with a new P.B.

Anthony Ventra will also contest the finals in the 13 years age group after qualifying for two events. Qualifying for the finals for the first time, Anthony will also swim in the 50m Freestyle and 50m Breaststroke after finishing 2nd & 3rd respectively, in times just outside his personal best. He also swam a new P.B. on the way to finishing 4th in the 50m Backstroke.

Our other members swam well too, with personal best times swum in 19 out of 25 events. In particular, Belinda Sloane and Angela Guaricci, swimming at their first swimming meet, swam personal best times in all of their events.

Congratulations to all our swimmers on their performances and good luck to David and Anthony at the finals. The Speedo Sprint Series Finals will be held at the Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre on Sunday, 18th March. Our team will be our biggest since 2003 and will contest the most events since 2002. It will also be the first time in over 15 years that we have had two swimmers competing in the same age group at the finals.
