Bermuda Master Swimmers Continue In Canada

August 12, 2014

Three Bermuda Masters swimmers competed in the last day of pool at events of the World Maters Swimming Championships in Montreal, Canada.

Sandra Dallas, 75, was first off the blocks in the 75-79 50 metres backstroke. She turned in a time of 1:07.88 and finished in 15th place. Her goal had been to swim under the qualifying standards in all her events, a goal she surpassed, earning medals in two of her breaststroke events.


Paul Degiulio finished in 22nd place in a very competitive field of 46 men in the 50-54 age group. His time was 5:09.47, just six seconds more than when he last did this event at the Latin American Championships nine years ago in Brazil.

Nick Rowse also did the 400 freestyle placing eighteenth out of 49 competitors in the 45-49 age group. His time was 5:52.31, and the race marked his first long course swim meet since he swam in university.


The coach, Victor Ruberry, was very impressed with the level of competition at the meet, and felt that the swimmers performed well in these championships which included many former Olympians and National level swimmers from many different countries.
