Con­tes­tants dive into event

Broome Advertiser - - Sport - Carly Laden

Plenty of new and fa­mil­iar faces flocked to the Broome Re­cre­ation and Aquatic Cen­tre for the pop­u­lar Dash and Splash on April 6.

In the sec­ond of the three-event series, ath­letes were once again given a chance to test them­selves by com­pet­ing in long or short­course races.

Although there were con­sid­er­ably more par­tic­i­pants in the short­course ver­sion of the Dash and Splash, the usual sus­pects were con­sis­tent in their high per­for­mances.

Daniel Ralph once again won the 2km run and 200m swim short course, while Kasey Turn­ham was the first woman to cross the line.

In the ju­nior di­vi­sion, Isa­iah Phillips and Talia Wilkin­son were the win­ners of the short course.

In the 4km run and 400m swim, a new male win­ner emerged in Michael Kaufman.

Jude Mil­lard won it for the women, while Jesse and Stevi Evans took out the ju­nior ti­tles.

The win­ners of the team events how­ever, held no sur­prises, with the teams of Jon Mos­chion and Sara Davies, and Ste­vie Car­son and Shanessa Leake win­ning the se­nior and ju­nior team events re­spec­tively once again. The fi­nal event of the three-part Dash and Splash series will take place at the BRAC on Fri­day, May 4.
