Cantrel classic relay return
THE Cobon team has again taken home the trophy
for the Camille Cantrel Classic.
The annual swimming relay event is unlike any other.
Speed plays a minimal role in the event where accuracy rules.
Each relay team swims to calculate a time which it must then try to make again as close as possible.
Stanthorpe Swim School's Gail Smail said the race was not about speed but consistency, where the fastest team was not necessarily the winner.
Each round a team is eliminated based on how far away they are from the original time.
With six teams competing, there was plenty of competition from age groups young and old.
The final race was between the top three teams and this year the competition was tight.
The Cobon team (pictured) managed to swim only 0.37 seconds off its first swim.
Runners up the Ok team did more than okay, only 0.85 seconds off their original time.
Third place was not so lucky, the team ending up five seconds outside of its original race.
The event was named after Camille Cantrel, who died in 2010 after battling cancer.
Mrs Smail said in previous years many businesses had entered teams to compete in the fundraising event.
She had hoped to see more teams this year and hopes next year will have a bigger turnout.
