How to see Burnett swimmers in action at regional swim meet

SWIMMING: THIS weekend swimmers from across the South Bunrett will travel up to Gympie for a carnival where seven athletes will have the opportunity to compete against clubs from across Wide Bay region.

Manager and swim coach at Kingaroy Aquatic Centre, Terry Dunn said she was proud of the work the kids have put in at their training sessions.

"It's the first time some of them have competed at a carnival, so they are pretty excited," Dunn said.

"We tell them to concentrate on their own race, remember their training and focus on their race plan and then the time they want will come.

"With the older kids we do a lot of mental visualisation and deep breathing work.

"I find it helps to teach them from a young age as it helps them to improve over all," she said.

The South Burnett Times is livestreaming the event hosted by the Gympie Gold Fins at the Gympie Aquatic Recreation Centre.

There will be more than 100 races which will start from 8.30am on Saturday, November 7.
