Thanks to everyone who supported our swim meet, our sponsors, volunteers, BSM members and visiting swimmers. The weather was not good and it would appear that the winter colds and flu took its toll on attendance; despite this the competition appeared to run well. A significant number of Branch and National records were broken particularly in the 4 x 100 m mixed freestyle relay which is rarely run under competition conditions. If you enjoyed the day tell everyone! If you think we can improve our act please tell us! We hope to see everyone at our 2020 swim meet, lookout for next year's MSQ calendar.

The BSM short course swim meet is on again, If you enjoyed the State Titles now is your opportunity to swim at the Brisbane Aquatic Centre as a short course venue.
The competition pool was state of the art when opened in 1981 and is still a world class facility, with wide lanes and 2 m deep through out. Innumerable records have been set in our pool including Open World records. Even if you can't swim that fast you will have the best possible opportunity of achieving a PB. In any case you will be swimming in the lanes of champions.
The venue is equipped a colour LED score board also modern timing and recording equipment. For our swim meet pads will be installed at both ends of the pool and semiautomatic back up timing equipment (single push button) will be in use. Your finishing time be displayed beside your name on the score board. Where available, reaction and split times will be published in the results on the BSM web site. For a variety of reasons the availability of reaction and split times cannot be guaranteed, for example, there is no manual backup for these times, starting from the pool deck or soft touches etc.
It is an indoor venue, sunburn is not a problem, neither is rain, hail or strong winds.
Brisbane Southside Masters members will try to make your day memorable for all the right reasons, we are friendly, generally don't bite and try to run our swim meets as professionally as possible without being officious. You will also be in the company of swimmers from all over South East Queensland and possibly from further afield. The venue can seat thousands so bring as many of your club members, friends, relatives, wives, husbands children etc. Everyone is welcome.
Similar to 2018, BSM will have an award for the swimmer of the meet. The award is based on the "merit" of their swims when compared to the National Records as the time of the swim meet. To be eligible a swimmer must complete five individual swims and achieve the greatest "merit" over the five swims. The "merit" of each individual swim is calculated by the FINA points score method below. The National Records are being used in lieu of World Records because there are no World records maintained for 25 m events and the 18 to 24 age group.
Merit = (National_Record / Time_Achieved)3 * 1000
