SunSmart Little Nippers Carnival 1 @ Cottesloe Beach – 3rd December 2023
A great effort & results at Little Nippers by U9 girls- Ellie, Regan, Emie, Holly and Namuun.
Notable Results:
Emie- final 16 in flags
Reagan- sprint finals, 8th overall
Holly- Surf race finals, 8th overall
Holly, Emie, Ellie & Reagan- Wade relay 6/7th overall.
Special mention to Emie for competing in every event and making it far in everyone!
An amazing result given only 5 Swanny U9 girls competing in field of 150+!! Best of all……they all had a great time!

Also congrats to Oliver and Scott in U8 on their first carnival! Both boys made quarters in beach sprint, Oliver had a very solid swim.
Unfortunately, they called off the flags race 3/4 the way through due to sand being to hot while still contention.

Regan Melia – U9
Elizabeth Snedeker – U9

Shaw & Partners and Race One Nippers Clinic @ Sorrento – 19th November 2023
Georgia Pazin
Whilst technically not a competition, there were more Iron-people here than any other event so far this season
Georgia writes: “There was a guy from Race One called Jimmy Walker who was talking to all of the Nippers who my Dad said was an Olympic kayaker but he was as old as my Dad and he talked a lot. But then he introduced all of the Iron Men and Iron Women to us and that was awesome. My favourite Iron Man ever is Ali Day and my favourite Iron Woman is Georgia Miller and they were the last people who got called up. That was amazing and all of the Nippers cheered for them.”
“All of the Nippers went down to the beach after that in their age groups and we had training drills with different Iron Men and Women. We did swimming drills and board drills and practiced our water running in the shallow water. They gave us lots of tips and advice. The trainers included Iron people I didn’t know very well but some of their names were Jemma Smith, Jake Morris, Corey Hill and then there were my favourites Ali Day, Georgia Miller and Kendrick Louis. Kendrick gave me a high five when we were doing a run drill and there is a photo of us high fiving. My sister Maggie who is 17 and a Swanny AGM was very jealous.”
The Williams’ sisters are also jealous. I’m just disappointed that your favourite Ironwoman wasn’t Courtney Hancock. But Georgia did explain why:
“I told Georgia Miller that my name was Georgia too and she called us Georgia 1 and Georgia 2. ”
