ASA Open WaterChampionships

It was a cloudy yet very warm day at Rother Valley on Sunday as our two Open Water competitors arrived ready to take the plunge in what seemed a rather large lake.
First up was Abbey Turnbull in the girls 13 years 1.5k. With a start of a floating platform and two laps round the big pink buoys to contend with, Abbey really did put in a gusty performance. Despite being fairly new to the open water field, Abbey did not disappoint with an amazing 8th place finish. Next up was our open water expert Georgina Walker. Georgina brought her experience to the table and showed great strength in the 3K race. This time it was three laps round a 1000 metre course but with the water being a lovely 23 degrees, it seemed like a piece of cake! Georgina had a fantastic race and eventually finished in 7th place.
Congratulations to both girls we are very proud of you and thanks to Coach Val for all your support!
Looking forward to next year.
