Masters win gold and smash PBs

MASTERS SWIMMING

LAST weekend was a big one for the Whitsunday Masters Swimming Club as all eight members competed at the North Mackay Short Course Meet in Mackay.

The overcast and slightly cool temperatures helped provide some positive results for swimmers as they took to the pool in a variety of events.

Club members recorded some terrific results, with many coming away with personal best times and even gold medals.

Swimmer Nicki Steel said she was pleased with her efforts after beating her 50m breaststroke record by four seconds.

"I was very excited especially because I haven't swum for three months," she said.

"It inspired me to keep going with training.

"Swimming is such a great sport especially in our climate."

Whitsunday Masters Swimming Club welcomes anyone over the age of 18 to come and join in the fun and they meet every Sunday morning at the Proserpine Swimming Pool.
