Mighty Dolphins Make Waves At 50th Great Barrier Reef Meet

A whopping 48 Pioneer Swimmers competed at the 50th Great Barrier Reef LC Transition Meet held at the Mackay Aquatic Centre on 18th and 19th November.  The team was mighty - being the largest team in presence - pumped for the weekend of racing!

The Meet was hosted by the Mackay Swimming Academy and this was their 50th anniversary event.  

To celebrate such a momentous milestone, the medals were extra special this year with the lanyards featuring the Great Barrier Reef Ocean and sea wildlife. They were absolutely stunning and greatly celebrated by the Dolphins. Pioneer Swimming Club congratulate MSA on such a successful meet and weekend.

The personal bests and podium placings obtained by Pioneer Swimmers were fantastic. Well done to all the swimmers for your individual and team successes!
