Jasmin White received a certificate congratulating her on a breaststroke meet record!
by Bobbie-jo Parton, Head coach/instructor
Firstly, I would like to say thank you to all of the swim club members and non-members for assisting with raising money for our swimmers and club during the fishing classic. It was great to see the community come together and help each other. Well done.
Secondly, even with cool weather the squad has still been running through the week and I am very happy to say that we still have swim club members training, braving the cold air and enjoying the warmth of the pool.
Three of our members, Mikala, Amber and Chloe Daniels performed well at the Mountain Creek Mooloolaba Short Course Meet in July. The girls have been looking forward to getting back into some competition.
One of our swimmers, Jasmin White had set a meet record in the girls 8 years 25m breaststroke, in a time of 23.71 seconds! I wanted to share with you how wonderful our swimmers are whether they win a medal or beat their previous time, we are all proud of the effort.
Last but not least, we will be holding the Wide Bay Short Course Swim Meet at the Aquatic centre on August 8 and 9, so be prepared for a busy time at the pool. How exciting this event will be to have here in Rainbow.
