Ettalong Pelicans swimmers shine at Nationals

The Ettalong Pelicans 2022 Nationals team

The Ettalong Pelicans enjoyed success at the Masters Swimming Championships at Sydney Olympic Aquatic Centre on April 20-24, finishing seventh.

After two years of cancellations due to COVID-19, the championships saw competitors from every state and territory in Australia, aged from 19 to 95.

Club captain, Marion Dreyer, said Ettalong fielded a team of 23 swimmers aged 25-76, achieving its most successful Nationals result for many years.

“Paul Lemmon broke six national records and was the male swimmer of the meet and the team took home 14 gold, 13 silver and 11 bronze medals in individual events and one gold, one silver and three bronze in relays; an amazing total of 43 medals.” Dreyer said.

“Ettalong Pelicans came seventh out of 84 teams in the point score and second in the average point score in a great team effort.”

The Pelicans train at both Mingara in Tumbi Umbi and the Peninsula Leisure Centre (PLC) at Woy Woy, where the main training night is Thursday from 6.45pm to 7.45pm.

The Pelicans will hold a carnival at the PLC on Saturday, May 28, with other clubs welcome to join in.

New swimmers are always welcome.
