Damascus Students compete in Long Distance Event

Congratulations to Damascus students: Lachlan Lucas, William McKechnie, Brooke Gannon and Tara Gannon. They recently took part in the annual long distance swim with the Swim and Survival Academy.

These long distance swims are non-stop swims, swum over various distances from 3 to 13 kilometres. To qualify to do a distance swim, the participants complete training which consists of 5 distance swims over a 6 week period to build up their endurance and strength. This is above and beyond their normal swimming commitments.

Well done to Lachlan, William, Brooke and Tara.
