Noosa Time Trials

Noosa Masters embraced the MSQ Postal Time Trial Meet and used it as an incentive to regain fitness lost during the Covid lockdown.

Congratulations to Lois for successfully organizing, conducting and supervising the 8 SC and 11 LC timed Postal Swim sessions during September and October. They were conducted under the rules of swimming to verify that strokes and turns were executed in accordance with Masters rules. The sessions followed a COVID safe plan and guidelines. (very clean…very hygienic).

Thank you to our timekeepers and officials for your participation: – Linda, Kerry, Jo, Helen, Jacky, Wendy I, LiQun, Viv, Anne B, Rob J and Lois.

Well done for all the swims to the 10 swimmers who participated: – Jo Matthews, LiQun Hussey, Adele Tucker, Robert Jolly, Anne Besser, Wendy Ivanusec, Helen Malar, Robin Selby, Diane Scott-Davies, Wendy Nothdurft.

We often participated on cold mornings and on the last day even finished the session under torrential rain. There were several PB’s set and many other good swims after the time out of the pools. Some participants were timed for the first time in an event entered.

 On the last day of the series Jo Matthews 400m Fly was her fastest this year closely followed by a fast 800m Free which was swum in torrential rain. It was her second fastest 800m Free time since arrival in Australia 4 years ago. A fitting end to a great series of timed swims.

Anne Besser did her first ever 200 Back LC! Also finished her 10th event of the series the 1500m Free punching the air and sporting a huge smile after her best time in 2 years. Well done Anne, your enthusiasm is great to see.

LiQun Hussey 200 Fly, PB 1st time ever survived! 4 tiny PB’s in a full program. Definitely the most improved swimmer.

Adele Tucker 50m Breast PB! We can see a good IM swimmer coming up there. In a blond moment Adele did a fast 1500m LC Back (not in the program) but might be able to entered as freestyle. Can be an endurance swim anyway…. Great effort Adele.

Results will be published to the event page of the MSQ website shortly. Well done Noosa Masters!

Rob and Helen, QNA Co-Captains.
