Three ducks went swimming...

Three local swimmers from the Duck Creek Mountain Masters recently competed in the National Championships in Launceston and all made the top ten in at least four of their events.

Ana Cussinet swam in 12 events and swam personal bests and made the top ten in ten of them. A remarkable achievement for someone who has to fir training in between running a business and making sure her two boys get to all their sporting commitments.

Therese Crollick swam in nine events and was pleased to make the top ten in four of them. She said her times were quicker than she swam at the World Masters Games last October and she felt more ‘swim fit’.

Paul Crollick competed in all of the 25m and 50m races and set PB’s in three events and made the top ten in four.

The three swimmers all enjoy their competition, but said their main reason for training is to maintain their health and fitness and for the friends they’ve made in the club, who motivate them to turn up and swim each week.

Therese will be off to Sweden at the end of July to compete in the Masters Swimming World Championships.
