The Olympics may be over, but our competitions are just getting started for the year!

imageAustralia demonstrated a stunning free routine inspired by the flora and fauna of Australia. The routine highlighted emus, crocodiles, kookaburra and more. The National team has 4 more years until the next Olympics but we only have 3 weeks until our next competition.

The Sydney Emeralds are hosting our first annual figures competition on September 10th 1pm to 4pm at Monte Sante Angelo pool. Ask your coach about your specific schedule.

Events

Footy versus Synchro

Piggy and the Big Marn from the footy show joined our head coach Vicki and head coach Erika from the Aquamarines in the water for a synchro show down. The Emeralds encourage men to participate in synchronised swimming, but however we are going to recommend that Piggy and Big Marn stick to footy.

Good effort gentlemen, I enjoyed the shark move the best.

Sydney Emeralds rocked Nationals

 

This past weekend the Sydney Emeralds competed in Perth at the 2016 Hancock Prospecting Synchronized Swimming Australian Open and Age group Championships.

We are incredibly proud of our three junior swimmers, Erica, Kiera and Jodie, who qualified for the Australian Junior Team. They will be representing Australia at the Oceania Championships in Fiji and the World Junior Championships in Russia.

We are equally proud of our newer swimmers who have had very little to no competition experience at this level. Genevieve, Pam and Tasha your performances were outstanding. The results are below;
