Swimmers take on distance challenge
SWIMMERS from the Whitsunday Swimming Club and the Cannonvale Cannons came together last Wednesday to participate in a 10km swimming challenge.
Swimmers of all ages and skill levels from both clubs took to the Proserpine pool to compete in the nation-wide challenge.
The 10km challenge was adjusted for younger swimmers and everyone involved enjoyed the afternoon of swimming which was capped off by an Australia Day themed barbecue.
Cannonvale Cannons representative Dawn Romanella said that all the swimmers had enjoyed trying something a bit different.
"Everyone had to keep swimming until they had reached the required distance and most of them were in the water for around three hours straight," she said.
"It was also a good lead up for our adult swimmers Michael Hanisch and Christie Leet who plan to swim in the Rottnest Island challenge later in the year."
