More photos below the story.

More than 40 Campbell River Killer Whale swimmers took part in the club’s Eliminator meet at Strathcona Gardens last weekend.

They were joined by three other Vancouver Island clubs for the two-day competition. It was a smaller competition than expected due to poor weather conditions affecting athletes’ abilities to travel safely.

It was swimmers’ last chance to qualify for the Vancouver Island Regional Short Course (25m pool) Championships being held at Saanich Commonwealth Place Jan. 24 to 26.

More than 20 Killer Whale swimmers had qualified ahead of last weekend’s competition.
