Tuggeranong Challenge – 27 November 2010

Meet report from Caroline Makin

Our very own Tuggeranong Challenge 2010 took take place on Saturday 27 November 2010.

The “Challenge” consists of swimming three events (200m, 50m and 100m), each in a different stroke. To ascertain the winner the absolute difference between actual and nominated time for each of the three events is aggregated. For example: if you swim 2 seconds faster in event 1, 3 seconds slower in event 2 and 0.5 of a second faster in event 3, your total difference over the 3 events is 5.5 seconds. The trophy is presented to the swimmer with the smallest total difference. The fastest swimmer will not necessarily be the winner.

The Overall winner of the challenge trophy was Ann Reid (for the second year running) with a total aggregate difference time of 2.47 seconds compared to her aggregate nominated time. In second place was Annette Britten with a total difference of 3.28 seconds and in third place David Bale with a total difference of 3.53 seconds.

The Event 1 winner for the 200m event was David Bale with a difference time of 0.22 seconds compared to his nominated time. In second place was Ann Reid with difference of 0.44 seconds and in third place Catherine Alexander with a difference of 1.10 seconds.

The Event 2 winner for the 50m event was Ann Reid with a difference time of 0.03 seconds compared to her nominated time. In second place was Jeanette Droop with a difference of 0.04 seconds and in third place Jane Noake with a difference of 0.06 seconds.

The Event 3 winner for the 100m event was Caroline Makin with a difference time of 0.67 seconds compared to her nominated time. In second place was Mark Patterson with a difference of 0.78 seconds and in third place Jane Noake with a difference of 0.78 seconds.

A spreadsheet with individual aggregated versus nominated time difference per event and overall can be downloaded.

The three main individual events were followed by one more fun 100m Muddled Medley event where competitors swam a 100m Individual Medley in a muddled order as presented to each competitor as they went to the starting line.  It is amazing how different it is swimming an IM in a different stroke order!

Next came the 4x50m Novelty Relay which was a fun event where competitors donned plastic Vikings hats in the spirit of this meet and kicked their way with a pull boy for 50m each.

The finale of the meet was the Shoot Out Relay which was a handicapped event with swimmers being placed in teams on the day, swimming the same stroke as their 50m choice in event 2.
