SSC Pentathlon this weekend

THE next Northern Mariana Islands Swimming Federation meet is this Saturday’s Saipan Swim Club Pentathlon at the Kan Pacific Marpi Pool.

Starting at 8 a.m., the Pentathlon will require all swimmers to complete each of the four main swimming strokes—freestyle, butterfly, breast and back.

However, stipulations vary depending on age group.

According to SSC Coach Jacoby Winkfield, swimmers age eight-and- under shall only be required to complete 50-meter of each stroke. Swimmers ages 9 to 12 shall do the same, but with an additional 200-meter individual medley. Finally, swimmers 13-and-older shall complete 100-meter of all four strokes plus the 200-meter IM.

The SSC Pentathlon is the 10th consecutive event on the NMISF 2016-2017 calendar year.

Confirmed participating swim clubs are SSC and Tsunami Saipan Swimming Center.
