On Saturday the 6th of March, a team of 6 Abbotsleigh swimmers was selected to represent the Metro north east area at the speedo sprints finals. This is a meet where the fastest swimmers in the state get together and race against each other representing their areas . In between swimming carnivals and big weeks of work these athletes prove themselves once again and came back home with amazing results. Claudia Liu, Freddie O’Hara, Marcus Primdal, Leisel Tan and Lara Valmadre, and a special mention to Grace Black for stepping in for the very first in a meet like this.
We had a total of 8 Top 10 placings, including 6 Top 4 placings:
Claudia Liu – 50 Breast – 4th Place
Freddie O’Hara – 50 Breast – 2nd Place
Marcus Primdal- 50 Bk – 2nd Place
Leisel Tan – 50 Fs -2nd Place
Lara Valmadre – 50 Fs and 50 Fly – 4th Place
Congratulations swimmers, you performed exceptionally throughout the Finals event.
