Last weekend, the student swimming competition started with the NSZK in Wageningen. With 30 swimmers, Ragnar conquered the seventh place! All the Vikings turned out to be in a really good shape and two club records were shattered: the 8x50m freestyle mixed relay and the 4x100m ladies’ relay. A great start of the year. The results can be found here.
On Thursday the 29th of September, the first mini competition of the year was held in preparation for the first NSZK in Wageningen. With 36 participants the competition was well visited. The official starter of the KNZB and the volunteers contributed to the huge succes of the evening. A welcome back drink was organised afterwards at a mystery location. The purpose of the evening was to let new Vikings and experienced Vikings get to know eacht other better and have lots of fun together. Afterwards, a select few finished the evening at Vrienden Live and showed off their best dancing moves.
The results of the mini competition can be found here.
