2014 National Championships

Upper page: Club News

In April, 3 keen Riverton members travelled across the country to Rockhampton, Queensland to participate in the ‘Nationals’ over 4 days, with some very good swims which included a number of PBs.  Our representatives were Damien Eyre, Kevin Ho and Steve Wills.

Riverton finished in 37th position and was the second top-scoring WA club after Kwinana.  A commendable result, given our very small team and the strong representation from other clubs, particularly the Eastern States clubs. Overall, it was a terrific performance by all 3 of our swimmers, as each one of them contributed valuable points to the Club’s total. Looks like all the hard training beforehand paid off!

Two of our swimmers won a total of 12 medals between them, with a special mention for Damien who had an outstanding meet with 7 gold medals, meaning he is the National Champion in those events for his age group, as well as silver in the other 3 events in which he swam.  In addition, he won his age group (most points gained over events swum).

With only 3 swimmers, our Club was not able to field any relay teams.

Well done to our swimmers!  Details of the medal winners, etc are shown below, with links to other results.
