2009 Check Off Challenge Results
A preliminary pass through the 2009 Calendar Year results produced the following list of people who had swum all 18 events in official competition during the 2009 calendar year:
Gagnon, Sylvie 38
Levesque, Gilles 46
Marshall, Lynn 48
Murphy, David 60
Ouimet, Robyn 32
Pelletier, Claude 65
Smith, Christopher 77
To generate the list we took all the 200fly, 1500free, 400IM and 50back results and generated a list of all swimmers that had swum all four. We then used the form on the Check Off Challenge Home page to check each of the resulting list of 24 swimmers to see if they had completed all 18 events.
Because this method will miss people who registered for meets with variations in their name (e.g. some meets as Chris, some meets as Christopher or including initials sometimes and not other times) there are likely some additional people who swam all 18 events. If you swam one of your events at an out of country meet you may also have been missed. If you completed all the events please send us your name and any variations so we can complete the list.
Once the list is finalized we'll order and send out t-shirts. If you have earned a Check Off Challenge shirt (anyone completing all 18 events in sanctioned swim meets in either one calendar year or one season) please send us your preferred shirt size!
The next Check Off Challenge is for the 2009/2010 season (Sept 1st 2009 to August 31st 2010). You can track which events you have swum by looking at the bottom of your individual results page, which you can access from your "My MSC Page" or from the Check Off Challenge home page.
Please remember that you must swim each event, splits don't count!
Completing the Check Off Challenge is a great way to add variety to your swim season, see the Check Off Challenge Home Page for details!
