On the 14th of February, the 19 members of Abbotsleigh swim team went to Sydney Olympic Park to race. For some of our swimmers it was their first time not only representing Team ABB, but also racing in a big competition. We could not ask for a better day, the swimmers got to the pool drop their things and went straight into their activation to then start the warmup at 8AM. The energy that it was possible to feel straight from the start was a set up for what was coming up during the day. Lots of smiles and amazing swims throughout the day and amazing results.
Team ABB had 37 top 10 placings spread across 11 swimmers and in all four strokes. What a great effort. Here is the break down of our placings:
1st place – 3 events
2nd place – 7 events
3rd place – 8 events
