Another huge weekend of racing has come to an end. Saturday saw us melting in the stands, with Sunday showing a little too much relief. Thankfully, I believe that conditions were a little more acceptable on the ground floor and pool deck.

Almost all swimmers achieved a PB, some were quite remarkable (remember all these races were 50m!) Ollie Bream improved 3.28 in Back, Sarah Cooper 2.07 in Fly, Eduardo Gonzales 1.31 in breast, Lachlan Jackett-Simpson 3.09 in Back, Luke Matthews 1.56 in Fly, Billy Pearson 2.09 in Back, Adam Sharman 2.1 in Fly and 1.54 in Breast and Ewan Smith 1.24 in Back

2015 Victorian Age Champs - Wrap

Last week showcased Victoria’s (and some NZers, Itoman’ers’, and a smattering of interstaters) best age group swimmers at the Victorian Age LC Championships. As always it was a huge week, especially as we ‘grown-ups’ attempted to juggle trips to and from MSAC with feeding swimmers, work life, family life, school for some and the silly season – no easy feat! Oh and there was some racing too… the weather was kind to us, with only the last day being a little fresh, but the rest of the week was delightful – to the point that I was reaching for my non-existent frozen Margarita. But I digress… RACING!
