WIAQ hosted the South Eastern Swimming Association summer championships and Speedo Sprints at Western Suburbs pool on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th February. With the whole local swimming community out in force it was great as ever to see WIAQ volunteers working across the weekend to make the event a great experience for every swimmer. Congratulations to James Davies, Mel Tregonning and Makenzie Powell who achieved the Judge of Strokes qualification at this carnival; they all recommend training for a role as a technical official and enjoying contributing as part of our swimming community.
In the pool, over 60 WIAQ swimmers competed with many athletes racing more than 10 events across 2 days. Personal bests, SESA records and championship qualifying times were obliterated throughout the weekend, and even the heavy rain couldn't dampen the high spirits of our swimmers. We are already looking forward to another great weekend at SESA champs next year.
