Swimmers compete at Southport

Ettalong Pelican Masters swimmers Katelyn Smith and Marion Dreyer recently competed in the Masters Swimming National Championships at Southport on the Gold Coast.

Dreyer said the meet lived up to its motto of Fun, Friendship and Fitness, with swimmers aged from 20 to 99.

The competition was over four days finishing with a presentation dinner on the last day.

Katelyn Smith competed in the 18-24 age group at her first Masters Nationals and came home with five medals.

Marion Dreyer said: "I swam several improved times in the 70-74 age group.

"There were some very fast swimmers in my age group and so no medals for me, but I am thankful that I have good health and fitness levels to be able to compete," she said.

She said: "My long term goal is to be still swimming in my 90s.

"I am always so inspired with all the older swimmers who continue to compete no matter what obstacles get in their way.

"If you are looking for a challenge, no matter what age you are, why not come and join us at the Peninsula Leisure Centre on Thursday nights from 7pm.

"It's never too late to start swimming," she said.
