Drummoyne Wins 5 Gold Medals in Battle!

Some tremendous individual performances saw Drummoyne Swimming Club swimmers win 5 Age Group Championships at the 2020 Battle on the Bay, together with another seven top 3 positions.

Congratulations to our individual medal winners Andrew Sharpe, Audrey Allan, Christian Taylor, Gabrielle Perkins, Hayden Howard, Isabelle Kerr, Jacob Johnstone, Kellen Parker, Lily Borozan, Mary-Lou Doolan, Skye Lewis, Will Howard and Ziani Viola for their impressive all-round swimming results.

All of our Drummoyne swimmers clubbed together to achieve the second highest point score across the four competing clubs, with the highest average point score going to Leichhardt Swimming Club, crowning them as winners of the 2020 Battle on the Bay Club trophy.

The highlights of the evening were the relay events at the end of the carnival, with Drummoyne dominating in the 11-12 and 13-14 year old mixed 4x50m relays and narrowly missing out by a split second in an exhilarating 10x50m that chopped and changed with every lap!

The full results of the 2020 Battle on the Bay are available here.

A big thank you to Leichhardt Swimming Club for successfully hosting this year’s event with entries for 289 swimmers. It’s gratifying to see the on-going success of the carnival in its 11th year, after it was initiated and first hosted by Drummoyne Swimming Club in 2010.

We look forward to taking up the battle again next year, which Ashfield has tentatively offered to host in their brand new swimming facility, which is currently under construction and due to open in August 2020.
