Meet report from Caroline Makin
Travelling with just her hubby Scott for poolside support, Caroline Makin headed north to compete in the NSW Ryde BPS Meet on Saturday 4 September.
Caroline was impressed with the facilities at the aquatic centre and the organisation from the Ryde club. She even got to know another ‘Pommie’ swimmer and her family from the Warringah Club and talked about the ‘old days’ of swimming in the North East of England and National UK Age Group Championships as a teenager!
Swimming in three individual events, Caroline Makin was up against some particularly tough competition in her 40-44 age group. Personal best times in the 200m IM, 100m Backstroke and 50m Backstroke meant Caroline headed home to Canberra pleased with her performances and with 25 points for the club.
Scott, on the other hand, was impressed with his personal performance as videographer on Caroline’s 200m IM and with the sausage sizzle Ryde laid on towards the end of the meet!
