Cash claimed, medals won as records tum­ble

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

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.
