A Saturday with a silver lining on a night with a massive 7 finals.
Bianca Rayward fought hard for a Silver in the 14yrs Girls 200m Freestyle. Turning in second after the first 50m – she battled through to claim the Silver – very tough racing.
Kai Gilbert followed this up with a Silver in the Boys 14yrs 400m Freestyle. A massive second half of the swim so Kai chasing down the winner.
Matthew Kalogeropoulos claimed 6th in his first National Age final in the same event with a massive swim.
In another double final Kai Gilbert and Hudson Sheehan claimed 6th and 8th respectively in the Boys 14yrs 100m Freestyle
Jasmine Rayward swam another best time, improving from heats to final in her first National Age final the Girls 15yrs 400m Freestyle – finishing 9th.
Kalani Creech improved his performance again from heats to final claiming 5th in the B final of the Boys 15yrs 50m Backstroke
Swim of the day was MJ Lowe’s 200m Freestyle. After the heats MJ was tied 11th and so faced a swim off. What a great opportunity to improve his performance but how nerve wracking going head to head with only one other swimmer, in front of packed grandstand less than one hour later.
MJ executed his race better, swam his own race, went faster than the first swim and went a best time – unbelievable!
So proud of him.
