Kate Scully and I swam the Senior Games in Gainesville this past Sunday. Kate won 2 gold medals and one silver and I won 3 gold and two silvers.
Kate Scully won the 500 yard freestyle, the 100yard Breaststroke, and took second in the 200 yard freestyle.
I won the 100 yard butterfly and set a new State age group record for men 60-64. I won the 500 yard freestyle and the 50 yard butterfly, while taking second in the 200 yard freestyle and 100 yard freestyle. The Games were for all competitors over 50 in the State of Florida. Glenn and Kate both compete for Team Dynoswim based in Palm Coast and train 3 nights a week at the Frieda Zamba pool. Currently we have 12 members who swim for the team. This past August two members, Kate and Sheryl Watkins swam the 2.5 mile ocean swim at Jacksonville Beach and each won their age group with over 60 swimmers competiting. The strong currents that day stretched the distance to 2.8 miles! You can contact the team at 386-586-3437.
Thanks, Glenn Partelow / Coach of Dynoswim
