Clovercrest distance sensation, Ethan Owens, has cemented his stranglehold on open water swimming in SA with strong performances in both the Open Mens 5km and 10km events. The 17 year old finished the 5km race on Saturday in 1:00:25.00 and then backed up on Sunday to take the 10km race in 2:06:20.00.

Other impressive performances in the 5km event came from 14 year old Riley Giersch and 16 year old T-Jay Rump. Giersch posted a time of 1:03:44.00 with Rump, the fasted female, completing her 5km in a time of 1:07:05.00. 

In the 10km event, age group swimmers Abbey Jones, Millie Lewis and Jade de Beer showed determination to finish the race within four minutes of one another. Meanwhile, in the popular 2.5km event there were several swimmers posting excellent times.    

A 1.5km Come 'N' Try event was also held in conjunction with the Championships so non-members of SwimmingSA could experience open water racing.  

The meet was used to select swimmers who will now travel to Sydney for the NSW Open Water Championships on the 13th and 14th December. Well done to all swimmers from the weekend and good luck to those who will now compete in NSW.
