A big morning of swimming!
First up this week we have a 50m freestyle. This will be closely followed by heats for one of the most highly-prized trophies of the season – the George Wheaton 50m “BBB” Handicap!
BBB is short for Breaststroke, Backstroke and Butterfly. It’s a unique event in which competitors race each other with different “B” strokes in the same race on handicap. So a swimmer in one lane may swim Butterfly, another Breaststroke and a third Backstroke!
If you haven’t already nominated your “B” stroke check out the specific post about this event.
Following the BBB, our long distance swim will be 400m Freestyle. To qualify for the 400m race, you must have a current 200m time less than 200 seconds (3m 20s).
There are the usual 200m, 4x30m and 4x20m Freestyle options for those of us who haven’t posted a 200 second qualifying time (or haven’t posted one in a while…).
