Race Week Wrap Up

18 December 2017

 Tough week of racing
It was a tough week of racing for the Funkita F-Team.

There's just one week until Christmas and after a mammoth week of racing the Funkita F-Team are adding some shiny new medals to their stockings this festive season.

The F-Team cleaned up at Queensland State Championships, with the girls from St Peters Western smashing it out in the pool. Young gun Shikira Matheson took out gold in the girls 15yrs 200m individual medley (2:17.42), as well as silver in both the 400m individual medley (4:51.05) and the 200m breaststroke (2:35.45). Shikira rounded out her medal count with a bronze in the girls 15yrs 100m freestyle (57.09) and 100m backstroke (1:05.35).

In the south east of Australia, the Victorian Age Championships were in full swing as the F-Team continued to dominate the podium. Youth Commonwealth Games swimmer Sophie Caldwell had a busy schedule at Age Champs, but didn't let that stop her from gaining race day glory.
