Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

SWIM­MING: On the week­end, five Whit­sun­day War­riors trav­elled to Townsville to at­tend the Rats of To­bruk Long Course Swim Car­ni­val in Townsville.

The four mem­bers swam well and the club achieved third place over­all, beat­ing Mackay and Cairns clubs.

Kay Corskie (70-74 years) and Linda Wardroper (60-64) were the Whit­sun­day star swim­mers. Both ladies won all their swims and their age groups. Two of Corskie’s best swims were her 50m freestyle in 58.52 sec and her 50m back­stroke in 1.11.02. Wardroper’s best swims in­cluded her 50m but­ter­fly in 52.3 sec and her 50m freestyle in 48.27 sec.

Mark Erick­son (55-59) and Ray­lene Ras­mussen (50-54) en­joyed their 400m swim as a warm up to the car­ni­val. Erick­son won all his sprint events and was happy with all his times, es­pe­cially his 200m IM which was un­der three min­utes. Ras­mussen was sur­prised by her 50m and 100m breast­stroke times. They both par­tic­i­pated in the TOWSA 2km Strand swim on Sun­day. Erick­son was easy to see in the pack of swim­mers as he swam over half of the dis­tance back­stroke.

The Whit­sun­day War­riors will con­tinue to train over win­ter in Can­non­vale on Sun­day morn­ings.
