Speedo Sprint Series Heats

16 of our junior swimmers represented the club at the Speedo Sprint Series Heats at SOPAC last Saturday. And wow did they represent the club in superb fashion. A total of 51 PB’s were achieved (14 in Freestyle, 15 in Breaststroke, 13 in Backstroke & 9 in Butterfly). The majority of our swimmers were backing up from the 50m Breaststroke Championships held at Club only a few hours earlier and some swimmers swum two Breaststroke PB’s in the one day!

State qualifying times were achieved by Matthew Vicic (50 metres Freestyle & Butterfly) & Summer Shrestha (50 metres freestyle). Helen Macpherson, Niushka Shrestha & Summer Shrestha achieved Metropolitan qualifying times in the 50 metres Butterfly. Unish Shrestha was a finalist and qualified for the Speedo Sprint Series Finals in the 50 metres Breaststroke. An outstanding effort by all of our swimmers and we congratulate every one of you on your achievements. A big thank you to our coaches who have worked with our swimmers to prepare them for these achievements and the parent support crew who were vocal in the stands throughout the entire session.
