Dynoswim was well represented by its two senior swimmers Kate Sussman and Glenn Partelow. Together they amassed 7 gold, 3 silver and 1 bronze medal in the October 25th meet held in Gainesville at the University of Florida. Earlier in the year both swimmers swam the Hammerhead ocean swim in Jacksonville with Kate winning her age group in the 1.25 mile swim and Glenn in the 2.5 mile swim.
In her category of 50-55 Kate won the 200 yard breaststroke in 3:27.52 and the 500 yard freestyle in 7:28.0. She placed second in the 100 breaststroke in 1:37.9 and second in the 100 free in 1:20.75. She secured her bronze in the 100 IM. in 1:30.81. After the 100 breaststroke the next event was the 500. That event was collapsed and she had little rest beforehand, yet, she took a quick lead in the first lap and beat everyone by over 1:30!
Glenn,60-65, had a good day winning 5 gold medals in the 200 free in 2:21; the 100 free in 1:02.9; the 50 fly in 31.4; the 100 fly in 1:12.9 and finally the 500 free in 6:18! The lone silver came in the 50 free in 28.4. Like Kate, Glenn dominated all competitors finishing 30 seconds ahead of the next best time in the 500.
Both swimmers practice with Dynoswim in Palm Coast three days a week for 90 minute sessions. The pool was warm this past summer with some workouts between 90 and 94 degrees! Now with cooler temperatures we are swimming in darkness for much of the workout with a lone bulb over the pace clock!
