Report by Endurance Co-ordinator – Katrina Burgess
During 2018 eleven Viking swimmers completed the Australian Masters Endurance Program. The program runs throughout the year and involves gaining points through completing up to 62 swims ranging from 400m to 1 hour of continuous swimming.
As a club, we won the NSW pointscore, and gained third place nationally. 2018 saw the highest annual points ever scored by the club – a fabulous total of 16,911 points scored by 41 swimmers. Great participation! Those Vikings came VERY close to acheiving a combined one million metres, acheiving a total of 955.8 km, over 1170 recorded swims. Both of these figures are also the highest ever achieved by the club!
Award towels were presented during the club’s EOFY drinks at Tuggeranong Vikings Town Centre Club, on Sunday 30 June 2019.
Thank you, and a huge congratulations to the Vikings swimmers who took part in the Endurance Program, as every swim counts.
