ACT Interclub Meet – Sun 04 Nov 18

On the afternoon of Sunday 4 November 18, 14 Tuggeranong Vikings, 18 Molonglo Water Dragons, seven Ginninderra Swim Club swimmers and two Sapphire Coast Stingrays participated in a short-course swim meet hosted at the Gunghalin Leisure Centre by our friends from the Water Dragons. In the spirit of helping out the locals, plenty of assistance was provided by many Viking members.

As always, it was a relaxed and friendly afternoon, giving ACT swimmers a chance to race locally. Tuggeranong was well represented by Tom Boyce, Annette Britten, Andrew Brown, Maria Castles, Nick Dando, Nick Grinter, Kris Kennedy, Kylie Lane, Kristen Leydon, Nina Maguire, Caz Makin, Anne Smyth, Elise Stewart and Jane Waddleton.

Thank you to those team members who came along to help: Greg Gourley, Denise Druitt, Bill Eversham, Katrina Burgess, Leisa Cass and Annette Byron. A special mention to Pete Sharman who was on the computers helping (again!), even though Ann wasn’t even swimming! A great community and team effort!

Everyone swam well with good solid swims and fast times all-round. A special mention to Andrew and Nina who competed for the first time in their adult lives! We finished the day with relays swum with great team spirit! Go Vikings!

Full meet results, with times, can be found here.

Results – Bunbury Winter Postal Swim

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!
