Manjimup Marlins Swimming Club has returned to the water for the first time since the COVID-19 outbreak closed the Manjimup Regional AquaCentre.

Under the watchful eye of coach Hyo Jin Son, swimmers were put through their paces.

Club vice-president Peter Krispyn said it was great to see their swimmers back in the water.

“It’s going to be interesting with their fitness, with them being off for so long, so these sessions will certainly test them,” he said.

“Most of the kids are excited to get back and start training again and hopefully they stay excited for swimming.”

Due to the limited number of patrons allowed within the centre at a time — 20 people — the club’s training sessions are restricted to one hour.
