It was a beautiful day yesterday in Welland with both air and water temp @ 24C/75F for MSOs Open Water Provincials. The event was held at the Welland Flatwater Centre delivering [as promised] flat water conditions in a simple up one side of the canal, back down the other side course. In addition to the 51 Masters swimming 3k, 5k or 10k distances, 24 Swim Ontario age group athletes joined in swimming the same distances. Officials followed the athletes by boat enforcing FINA open water rules (i.e. no drafting, no interference, no wetsuits).
TOEST was represented for the first time at a MSO event with both Coach Mark and Team Manager Aimee competing in the 3000m event. Both set personal bests which were 4+mins faster than last year. Next year we look forward to having teammates join us at the event.
