TSS Aquatic had their best ever showing at the National Open Water Championships over the weekend in Rockingham, WA.
We had one less swimmer than we did last year at this meet and smashed the medal tally.
On Saturdays racing Lachlan Colquhoun won the overall race in a close finish and claimed the Gold Medal in the 17/18yrs 10km, Alessandra Colombini won the Gold Medal in the 17/18yrs Girls race. Bianca Crisp was the 15yrs 10km Champion whilst Nicole Conyngham finished with the Silver Medal in the 14yrs Girls race.
All of the swimmers were back for more racing the day after for the 5km event. Nicole Conyngham swam a superb 5km to win the Gold Medal in the Girls 14yrs and Bianca Crisp won the Gold Medal in the Girls 15yrs race. James Otley-Doe hit the water for the first time in the weekend winning a Silver medal in the Boys 13yrs 5km event.

Congratulations to all swimmers who competed at the 2015 Southport Junior Swim Meet on Saturday. Everyone did a fantastic job! Arriving in plenty of time to have the best preparation, preparing for each race, and more importantly having great fun!
Most of you remembered to come and see me before and straight after every race, and made sure you didn't miss any races. This is a very important part of race day practice that is followed all the way through the TSS program.
When swimming at these Meets we all would like to achieve a pb, but sometimes that is not always going to be possible, as if it were, we would all be World Record holders:-)
Some swimmers had some great challenges. Goggles snapping, Swim Caps ripping, full starts by other swimmers, but this did not effect their races at all, so a big well done to those swimmers for keeping calm and collective:-)
Congratulations to the following swimmers:-
A big Special thanks to David Nye who organized the tents being put up and down, and to all who helped him.
I really hope I haven't missed anyone out, if so please let me know and I apologize for doing so:-)
Mandy and Mel.
