This week we begin Winter Season sports trials and prepare for next Monday’s Inter-House Swimming Carnival. Two days after the Inter-House Carnival, we will host the APS Swimming Carnival.
Bianca Crisp, Open Water Swimming
Bianca competed at the Australian Open Water Championships held at Brighton Beach in Adelaide from 27 to 29 January. She elected to swim in the Open Women’s 10km event as it was a selection event for the Australian Open Water Team. She did very well to finish 5th Australian, narrowly missing out by just one place for selection on the Australian Open Water Team to go to the World Cup at Abu Dhabi. The following day, Bianca went on to compete in the 17/18 Women’s 5km event and won gold.
Bianca has been selected to attend the Swimming Australia Open Water Development ID Camp at Lake Conjola, Ulladulla in New South Wales from 5 to 10 February. Open Water swimmers are selected across Australia to undergo specific open water training to develop their skills and education with coaches, nutritionists and sports psychologists.
Bianca was also selected on the Queensland Open Water Team to travel to New South Wales for their Open Water Championships held at Penrith from 19 to 20 December. She competed in the 17/18 5km event and placed 2nd.
