Sal­mons young and old claim the big swims

Dubbo Photo News - - Sport -

DUBBO Ducks veteran Greg Sal­mon showed per­fect style, swim­ming up­stream to claim the Kin­tyre Coun­try Liv­ing monthly tro­phy.

Greg’s win in the 50 me­tres freestyle hand­i­cap was al­most over­looked as his sev­enyear-old grand­son Lu­cas took cen­tre-stage.

“The lit­tle fish showed great de­ter­mi­na­tion when he took to the wa­ter for the 50-me­tre dash at the Aquatic Cen­tre. What a lit­tle goer he is. Mum, Dad and grand­fa­ther Greg were pool­side cheer­ing him all the way home,” Duck Judy Walsh re­ports.

It was a fairly quiet morn­ing with 16 swim­mers in the wa­ter.

“Marg Ross and I were so in­spired by the In­vic­tus Games we de­cided the cold wa­ter couldn’t be too bad, so both of us took the plunge,” Judy laughed.

The Dubbo Ducks are off to Nar­romine Pool for the next two weeks as the Dubbo pond is un­avail­able. The bus leaves the RSL carpark at 8.30.

Any­one wish­ing to join Dubbo’s old­est – many say “funnest” – swim­ming club can con­tact the RSL Health and Fit­ness Cen­tre.
