Smooth strokes

The Compass - - NEWS -

It was a great week­end for the Trinity Con­cep­tion Gen­tle Gi­ants Spe­cial Olympic team. Thirty-seven swim­mers from Trinity Con­cep­tion, Con­cep­tion Bay South and St. John’s com­peted at the Car­bon­ear Swim­ming Pool, tak­ing part in var­i­ous dis­tance swims, in­clud­ing 25, 50 and 100 me­tres. Freestyle and back­stroke were quite popular, but some tried some more dif­fi­cult events, like the in­di­vid­ual med­ley, where they also swam but­ter­fly and breast­stroke. Team­mates Robert Moore (cen­tre lane) and Luke Mullins (right) com­peted against a swim­mer from an­other team dur­ing this heat of the 25-m back­stroke. It was a close race.
