Two Jindabyne swimmers - Nicholas and Melanie Coleman - ventured to Bega on Saturday to take part in the Bega swimming carnival. The 33 metre Bega swimming pool is an unusual and challenging length for swimmers used to swimming in a 25 metre or 50 metre pool. Nicholas and Melanie did very well and came away with several medals as evidence that they could adapt to any conditions.
Their results were:
Nicholas: 3rd place under 8yr boys 33mtr Backstroke and 2nd place 7yr boys 33mtr Freestyle.
Melanie: 1st place 13yr old girls 100mtr Butterfly, 1st place 13yr old girls 200mtr Freestyle, 2nd place 13yr old girls 100mtr backstroke, 2nd place 13yr old girls 100mtr Breaststroke and 3rd 13yr girls 100mtr freestyle. Well done to Melanie, her first away competition swimming event.
On Saturday several Jindabyne swimmers will travel to Cooma to compete in the Cooma development carnival.
The Jindabyne Swimming Club wishes them all the best and are sure they will give it their best shot and do themselves and the club proud.
This Friday's events are - Butterfly, Breaststroke and Freestyle so see you there at 5pm for warm up.
