Jemma Chamberlain, Shaun Champion, Jasmin Foster, Holly Nelson and Emily Washer engaged in the Olympic racing format. This format of afternoon heat sessions and morning finals, will be used in the 2020/1 Olympics. Because of this, there are a number of competition that will follow this process. So by design the meet had a different feel. Our swimmers enjoyed mixing their best along side the majority of high performing Open swimmers across the country. All swimmers predominantly use this meet to check in on things they are working on under racing conditions. Managing energies to perform in heats at 8pm at night and waking up and getting our body and brain ready to perform in morning finals was a different challenge too.
Overall we take learning back to our training pool as we prepare for National Championships in April.
Well done to Shaun and Holly who competed in finals with Shaun securing 2 medals, Silver in 100 Butterfly and Bronze in the 50 Butterfly.
Well done also to Jemma and Jasmin competing in their first Open meet.
