Bunbury Masters Swimming Club hosted a new race format at South West Sports Centre on Saturday where entrants complete multiple races minutes apart with the slowest eliminated from each round.
The handicap start makes the race very competitive for all entrants.
The under 60 category was won by Brett de Bruyn, 25, who is training to swim solo to Rottnest next year. Richard Hughes from Mandurah, 54, was the runner up.
The feature event of the meeting was the Splash-for-Cash for the faster swimmers with competitors completing five 50 metre sprints at three minute intervals, involving all stroke types.
The women’s event was won by Kristy Brackstone from Claremont Masters while Mandurah Master Anwar Moreno won the men’s event.
In total 44 competitors swam at the event which was made possible by a Bunbury City Council Community Grant and sponsorship from Badgers Embroidery.
The Bunbury Masters Swimming Club is open to any adult who enjoys swimming, or used to enjoy swimming and would like to start again in a safe friendly environment.
Swimmers of all abilities are welcome.
