Victorian swimmers success at Queensland Open Water Championships

Vics at 2023 Qld Open Water Championships
Written by: Swimming Victoria

The water was a balmy 24.4 degrees at the Oz Ski Resort, Coolum for the 2023 Queensland Open Water Championships on Saturday 14 October.

20 Victorian swimmers, from 9 clubs, headed north to the Sunshine Coast. Given the bay conditions in Victoria are not currently ideal for open water swimming, the Vics really punched above their weight in terms of podium finishes across the board.

Well done to all swimmers on your fantastic results. We look forward to you and your teammates taking on the 2023 Victorian Open Water Championships on 9 December in Geelong.
