The All-Florida Senior games were held in Fort Meyers, Florida on December 5 and 6. Two swimmers from Dynoswim competed in 6 events and medaled in all six, despite sitting in the bleachers for 4 hours in the cold rain!
Placing first in the 50-55 age group in the 500 yard freestyle was Kate Sussman in 7:14. She took 30 seconds off her qualifying time that she made in Gainesville in September. She then placed second in 100 breaststroke and 3rd in the 50 breaststroke.
Glenn Partelow placed first in his events of the 500 yard free in 6:09, 9 seconds faster than his qualifying time in Gainesville. His 200 free was first with 2:17 and his 100 yard fly set a new age group record in 1:11.
Both swimmers have been practicing in the dark and cooler air here in Palm Coast at the Frieda Zamba pool. The Dynoswim team is preparing for an appearance at the Masters' National competition in May in Atlanta. Several team members have already qualified in multiple events. This January some team members intend to participate in the January Jam and complete the 1-hur postal event.
