Swimmers aim for PBs, not wins
IT IS important to focus on personal bests with any competition as this is where the real victories are won.
It is all about swimming that particular event faster than you swam it last time, and just because you placed in an event does not mean you have already swum a personal best.
That all comes down to the others in the pool, which is why on club night Isis Swimming Club focus only on personal best times rather than who touches to end of the pool first.
The club’s last meet was no exception, with some impressive personal best times being swum.
There have been a few new swimmers going to club night lately with the ability to attend come and try for two nights for a minimal fee. All are welcome.
It will be interesting when the club can compare their times in the coming weeks.
Some standout performance were Tom Nunn-Rutledge taking 7secs of his 33 breaststroke, Zane Fitzgerald for smashing 19secs off his 100 freestyle, Xanthe Whitaker reducing her 200mr breaststroke time by 13secs, and Zaniel Cooke for absolutely destroying his previous time for the same event by a massive 25secs.
