*Sigh* what a pathetic title for this blog….Please dont tell me i have writers block, hang on who am i kidding that should be wafflers block




Not that i ever REALLY went anywhere and yes i said it would be live-ISH blogging, so you know, like dont HANG me because i did not get it exactly right ok??

So after much chatting, dirt digging, selfies and generally being as observent as possible i will now present to you the GOOD, BAD and UGLY (no really its the least i can do !!)



  1. Riverton finished 7th Overall which was an awesome acheivement !
  2. We had FOUR swimmers win their age group by accruing the most points by winning races. This is the first time in the clubs history this has happened !!
  3. Emma Cheney. Tarmo Terve. Lee Murphy.Damien Eyre all won their age groups.
  4. EVERYONE was hammering out PB’s and i think we surprised a few other clubs because we SMASHED THEM YEAH BOI !!!
  5. There were so many wonderful individual performances that i cant list them all HOWEVER i will put my coaches hat on and pick out the best one for each swimmer at the end of this post !
  6. There were at least 6 state records set by our club !
  7. Berts effort at the post meet feed
  8. The meet itself was very well run by MSWA finisnhed early both days !
  9. We had 14 swimmers attend which was a record number for a states event !


  1. Tarmo getting a bit over excited in the relay and breaking tsk tsk (dont worry mate we have all done it…*Cough* Rob Weir*cough
  2. Starters with itchy trigger fingers…Poor old Rob first time i have ever seen someone miss a backstroke was NOT his fault though. DAMN it was funny – The pic below gives a good idea what he looked like when all the other swimmers took off and left him there…..




  1. GP turning up about 5 seconds before his 50 breast (i have spies everywhere !) Literally walks in, drops his bag and runs to the marshalling area ahhh brings backs memories of Malira at the relay carnival circa 2012…BUT the big fella made his heat JUST !!! – Special thanks to my spies….
  2. My head




COACHES PICK (just an excuse to make up a nickname)
