Merrylands was represented by 4 swimmers at the Metro South West Open Water Championships. The championships were held at the Sydney International Regatta Centre on 17th November, 2019.
Matt was the first to compete, swimming in the Boys 11-13 Years JX 2.5k swim. Matt swam a very strong race, improving on his result from last year by over 5 minutes!
Nevah and Summer were next to swim the 2.5k in the Girls event. This was the first time they have swum 2.5k in an Open Water environment and whilst there was some nervous anticipation both had solid swims and should be very proud of themselves!
Brendan swam the 5k event which was 2 laps around the course. This was also Brendan's first time swimming this event and picked up a surprise gold in the "Boys" 26-35 Years age group.
Congratulations also to all the parents, Ruby and coach Alison who managed to up their step count for the week as they supported our swimmers around the course.
