Saturday 4th February saw 472 young swimmers from the ages of 8 to 13 years compete in 34 individual events and 4 relays. We welcomed 29 swimmers who tried competition swimming for the first time and at SOPAC – what an amazing first time experience for these swimmers!
We saw lots of PBs, lots of ribbons earned and even new National qualifiers! From this meet there were around 100 swimmers whose times and places earned them a top 4 spot in the 50 metre events. These swimmers have been selected to compete on the Metro North East Team in the Speedo Sprint Finals on 4th March at SOPAC. These swimmers will be competing in 48 individual events and 8 relays.
Congratulations Speedo finals Team, we look forward to seeing your results competing against all the other NSW Areas next month!
Thanks to all the Technical officials who gave up their personal time to help run another meet for our swimmers. The kids loved seeing their parents in important roles on pool deck having lots of fun!
