Swimming Australia’s GO SWIM
A recent coup for Woodenbong Amateur Swimming Club on 11th October 2012 was a visit by Olympian and Commonwealth Games medallist, Ryan Napoleon, as part of Swimming Australia’s GO SWIM month promotion. Ryan spoke to the members about his story, preparation, nutrition and answered numerous questions. The event incorporated the regular swimming club night activities.
It was also signing up night for the new swimming season, with a number of new members enrolling. Ryan provided the highlight of the evening by swimming 100m freestyle with the A grade girls. Ryan freely gave advice and most attendees went home with autographs.
Part of the GO SWIM promotion was the encouragement of healthy eating, so swimmers enjoyed fresh fruit sticks and a nutritious barbecue.
Woodenbong Amateur Swimming Club is very grateful to Ryan, Swimming Australia, and GO SWIM for this wonderful opportunity which has taken place in the lead up to their 50th Birthday Celebrations, celebrating the opening of the Woodenbong Pool on 17th November 1962, to be held at the Alan Mahoney Memorial Pool, Unumgar St Woodenbong on 17th November 2012.
