Kalgoorlie Swimming Club hosted their annual Kalgoorlie Boulder Crusher Short Course Meet over the weekend of 9th and 10th July 2016.

The swim meet was well supported by both metro swimming clubs and regional swimming clubs. Perth City, South Shore Swimming Club, Arena Swimming Club and Southside Penrhos Wesley attended from the metro area as well as regional clubs from Esperance, Kambalda, Pinjarra and Waroona.

The Boddington trio swam a total of 22 events over the weekend resulting in 22 personal best times, 18 state qualifying times and 13 medals in total including six gold medals.

Boddington head coach Karen Vlastuin was elated by the results, the highlight being the fact that Boddington Swimming Club has a new state qualifier in Caleb Vlastuin. In addition, Calia and Izak were nominated as being in the top 5 overall swimmers of the meet across all age groups.

Caleb will join his brother Izak and sister Calia in representing Boddington at the West Australian Junior Short Course Championships to be held in September 2016.

Boddington Swimming Club now has 5 state swimming representatives in the 2016/2017 season, as Krosby and Kele Readhead also represented Boddington at the West Australian Junior Long course Championships held in April 2016.

Congratulations to the Vlastuin family on their recent success.
