As many club members know, one of the ways to get a ‘competitive’ swim under your belt without the hassles of travelling is to sign up for one of the numerous ‘Postal Swims‘ hosted by various Masters clubs around Australia (details of the full calendar here). For those that aren’t regular endurance swimmers, these swims are a great motivation to improve your fitness and skills. As well as hosting our own Tuggeranong Trifecta, Tuggeranong Vikings swimmers have been enthusiastic participants in a range of Postal Swims for years.
With the recent completion of this year’s Bunbury Stingers’ Winter Postal Swim, we have, this time, seen particularly strong participation and results from a significant number of Vikings. An outstanding total of 15 Vikings clocked up (at least) the required 3 x 400m swims, with Denise Druitt taking out the Most Improved Female award! Great work, Denise – congratulations!
