Small group of Sharks post big results

CVAC swimmers in action at Winter Classic in Campbell River

A small contingent of five Comox Valley Aquatic Club Sharks travelled to Campbell River to compete in the recent Winter Classic swim meet.

This was a chance for swimmers to swim some “off” events and in particular their stroke 50m races.  It also provided them with an opportunity to work on their splitting.

Julianna Bartemucci won all her events and made best times in her 50s. Gabrielle Wolfe also won all her events and showed excellent form in the execution in her 400 freestyle. Her splits were picture perfect as she swam to a best time of 5:01.29.

Yuriah Kaska won his 50 free and came second in all his other races. He cut 7.47 seconds off of his 400 free. Brendan Sharp won the 50 Back and the 50 fly, came second in the 50 free, and pulled off a bronze in the 50 breast.

In the 13/14 age category Alexey Komarov-Shute swam to second in the 50 Back and 50 free. He also garnered third in the 50 breast.

The Sharks are getting ready for the Xmas Cracker meet in Victoria this coming weekend. They thank all of their supporters.
