Congratulations Oliver, 1st and 2nd place in the 2K and 5K Cole Classic Swim.

The Cole Classic on Manly Beach is one of the most popular and prestigious ocean swims in Australia. Taking place every year on the first Sunday in February, it attracts upwards of 4,000 participants across the 1km, 2km, and 5km race categories.
In the 5km swim, from Shelly Beach to Freshwater and back, Oli Spanton achieved 2nd place after a competitive sprint up the beach. This only motivated Oli to go one better, diving in to tackle the 2km event later that morning. In an outstanding effort, Oli won this event in a time of 25:40min, 2.34min ahead of 2nd place, in a field of 1357 swimmers. This was a remarkable achievement, most notably because Oli, in Year 11, was competing against seasoned adult swimmers in an extremely strong field. The School warmly congratulates him.
