Boys' School take on Ocean Swim

April 03, 2014 at 10:15 AM

In a first for the Boys’ School, a group of swimmers travelled to the NZSS Triathlon Championship in Gisborne to take on the Ocean Swim and Aquathon event. They soon discovered, as did the College triathletes, that Gisborne had attracted some unexpected conditions for the event with high winds turning the sea into a boiling surf!

The boys had a good training day in moderate conditions on the first day but the location for the actual event was changed at short notice to ensure the safety of all competitors. All our boys gave their best and it was a great taste of competition for them at this level. Congratulations in particular to George Falconer who achieved a 3rd place in the U12 Boys Ocean Swim. Well done!
