Eighteen Vikings entered the Bunbury 3 x 400m Postal Swim this year.
In May/June 2011, as many as eighteen of our members took part in the Bunbury postal swim … 3 x 400m swims (Freestyle, Backstroke and either Breaststroke or Butterfly) this year.
Last year we picked off two of the medals on offer (fastest female and most improved female); this year we went one better and took out three medals: fastest female (and fastest overall): Philippa Rickard; fastest male: Nick Dando and most improved male: David Bale.
Our female swimmers were first in four of the six age groups we entered. The boys were first in both their age groups. Six swimmers swam faster this year than they did in 2010 … Caroline Makin, Ann Reid, Anne Smyth, Cecelia Kaye, Pam Munday and David Bale).
There were sixty nine entrants this year — Tuggeranong swimmers were the only NSW/ACT representatives! Five of our swimmers were among the top ten with first, second, fifth, sixth and seventh places — Philippa, Nick, David, Caroline and Anne respectively.
Full results for this postal meet will be available on the Postal Swims section of the Masters Swimming website.
