Six of our Masters Swimmers headed up the coast for the NSW Masters State Short Course Championships. This meet was held at the Peninsula Leisure Centre at Woy Woy.
Our team had great results including achieving some all-time personal bests which is a wonderful achievement in Masters Swimming. Some of our swimmers also wound back the clock with swims the fastest in 4 to 8 years!
Varant flew up the coast after racing at club and demonstrated hard work pays off with all of his swims being new short course personal best times. Varant cracked under 1:20 for the first time in his 100m Freestyle.
Peter picked up some bling with a Silver in the 100m Breaststroke and Bronze medals in the 50m Breaststroke and 200m Freestyle. Peter also earned club bragging rights with a 50m Freestyle win over Tim and Alison.
Kylee achieved a new personal best time in the 50m Backstroke where she also picked up a Bronze medal. Kylee’s 200m IM was the fastest she has swum since 2016 earning herself a Silver and Kylee’s new personal best in her 200m Backstroke gave her another Bronze medal.
Timothy bagged a Silver and a new personal best time in his 50m Freestyle. Timothy swam his fastest 200m Freestyle outside of Modern Pentathlon competitions and picked up a Bronze for his effort.
Alison almost had a clean sweep with 4 Golds and 1 Silver medal.
Ian swam his fastest 100m Freestyle since 2017 then followed with a Gold in the 200m Individual Medley, which was also his fastest time since 2017. Ian also decided to mix it up with a 50m Breaststroke and 100m Butterfly. The decision paid off with a Bronze medal in the Butterfly.
Well done to our team on these amazing results!
