A special mention to Christian Taylor for achieving the fastest time of the meet with a 25.55s in his 50m Freestyle!
The Carnival was topped off with a crushing win by our 10x50m relay team, beating Leichhardt by 20 seconds, with our ‘B’ team close behind.
Olympian James Magnussen was a great sport by racing with the “Little Battlers” 10x50m relay team. I’m sure it’s an experience that the 9-10 year old’s in his team will remember for the rest of their lives, including Marcus Svoboda and Henry Garvey from Drummoyne!
We’re very proud of the massive effort put in by all of our swimmers, with many swimming Personal Best (PB) times, which can be seen by comparing ‘final’ times to ‘seed’ times in the detailed results.

This Saturday is the 10th Annual Battle On The Bay Swimming Carnival! Being held on home turf this year, it all kicks off from 3pm, this Saturday afternoon!
As well as all the usual races and relays, we have a few surprises up our sleeves. A very special Drummoyne local / Olympic medallist will join us on pool deck and maybe in the water for a relay if we’re lucky!
The raffle this Saturday will be one of the biggest in Battle on The Bay history with over $2,500 worth of prizes to be won thanks to our sponsors below:
This raffle is not to be missed. Grab your tickets on the day!
As the Carnival is on a Saturday afternoon, we do advise swimmers to get there early to get a park. It will be busy, so please allow ample time.
We are also still looking for volunteers on the day to help with timekeeping and other jobs. If you would like to help contact Tim: firstname.lastname@example.org or volunteer on the day.
It should be another riveting Battle on the Bay with plenty of medals and prizes on offer! Every swimmer will win points towards the trophy for the fastest Club on the Bay and the fastest swimmers in each age group will fight it out for the prized 10th Anniversary Carnival Medals.
The highlight of the Carnival is always the 4x50m Freestyle relays followed by the exciting 10x50m relay show-down between the fastest swimmers from each Club.
This year we have the home town advantage. Go Drummoyne!
