Fun in the Sun

From the 21-23 May veteran sun-lover, club vice-president and registrar, John Collis braved the warmth and sun to compete in the Great Barrier Reef Masters Games GBRMG). This was no mystery to John who attended high school in Cairns and has competed in these Games twice before. In 2017 John, who was at the young end of his age group, scored 3 firsts and 3 new records, one second and one third and was awarded “Male Swimmer of the Meet”. Then in 2019 John scored one first (a new record) and five second places but left before the meet finished to attend his 50th school anniversary. However Molonglo scored “Male Swimmer of the Meet” for a second time with treasurer Gary Stutsel scoring 9 individual firsts and 9 new records.
