Swim­mers aim for PBs, not wins

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

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.
