Victorian Open Water Championships

A good contingent of Surrey Park swimmers and families attended the 20th Annual Sauna Swim (incorporating the Victorian Open Water Championships) at the Hazelwood Pondage over the weekend of 16-17 October.

The weather was less than ideal as the cold, rain and wind set in for both days - gum boots and raincoats were the order of the day for most spectators.

Although the conditions made attaining national qualifying times hard in the 5km and 10km events, Surrey Park managed to claim a total of 19 medals across the 1km, 3km, 5km and 10km events.  Medal winners were:

1km

  • Eileen Crabb (Gold - Female 13-15)
  • Cameron Crabb (Gold - Male 13-15)
  • Tom Crabb (Silver - Male 16-19)
  • Coach Justin (Silver - Male 20-29)

3km

  • Alexandra Good (Gold - Female 10-12)
  • Leo Wong (Bronze - Male 10-12)

5km State Championship Events

  • Bethany Robertson (Gold - Female 15-16)
  • Alisha McNamara (Bronze - Female 15-16)
  • Sebastian Cumins (Gold - Male 13-14)

  • Kien-Anh Ngo (Bronze - Male 15-16)
  • Max Halson (Bronze - Male Open)

10km State Championship Events

  • Bethany Robertson (Gold - Female 15)
  • Alisha McNamara (Silver - Female 16)
