Cash claimed, medals won as records tumble
A NUMBER of medals and other unexpected spoils summed up Isis Swimming Club’s competition at Wondai on Saturday.
The club sent 12 swimmers to the event, with five competitors touching home to claim medals and, in Chloe Behan (above) and Iszach Kenny’s cases, unexpected cash.
Behan finished third and Kenny finished fifth in the dash for cash, capping a sensational meet in which Behan brought home a silver and a bronze and Kenny a bronze in the 50m freestyle.
John Bauer kept first-event butterflies at bay to win bronze in his breaststroke event, while Chelsea Whitaker also won bronze.
Alex Whitaker finished with Isis Swimming Club’s biggest haul, claiming one silver and three bronze medals across her events.
Closer to home, Isis has witnessed a huge improvement of times at club meets following an influx of new swimmers.
Tyarn Dwyer smashed her 66m breaststroke personal best by a whopping 20 seconds, while other swimmers shaved anywhere between a few seconds and half a minute from their times.
