Golden Flipper Challenge – Swim BC leads Alberta, with limited racing opportunities in October

November 2, 2021

We are one month into this season Golden Flipper Challenge and the October results are now posted. Swim BC leads with 1047 points to Alberta’s 560 points.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and different restrictions in place in the two provinces, Swim BC has had a distinct advantage at the onset of this challenge. While Swim Alberta has had a slow start they will be gearing up for more racing and great butterfly performances into the coming months.

Maintaining our lead requires the collective efforts of our clubs, coaches, and swimmers. A couple of things you can do are: one, put effort into developing better dolphin kick, fly starts, turns, and stroking and two, challenge yourself by entering the 50, 100, and 200 butterfly events in competition or submit results from unofficial in-house butterfly swims.

The Golden Flipper Butterfly Challenge will continue through the 2021-22 Season.
