Wonderful start to Levin club’s swimming season
The Ice Breakers held their Blue Ribbon swim meet on Sunday November 25, starting the club’s summer racing swimming programme with an array of ribbons spread through the team of 15 and personal bests.
Seth 3 – 3rds, Oscar 1 — 3rd, Lucus 2— 1st, I –2nd, 2 — 3rds, Tuhera 2 — 3rds, Keanu 5—2nds, Mason 1 — 3rd, Arliyah 3 – 1st, 1 –2nd, 2-- 3rds, TJ 2 — 1st, 1 — 2nd, Tayla 1 — 1st, 3 — 3rds, Lazarus 2 — 3rds.
New members Siobhan, Tuhera, Trent and Sapphire Tunui all swam well, getting nice personal bests. Some will need a little bit of fine tuning in training, but these swimmers have a swimming career ahead of them.
TJ surprised himself and family, coming back from injury and setting himself a new PB in 200m freestyle.
The big surprise goes to Arliyah (8) who won her age group, getting a blue sachet as the group winner. Jed and Abby, although not winning ribbons, may have achieved a few more qualifying times for the NZ Junior festival.
