Annie Cooke Wins Silver in Masters World Swimming Championship

13 March, 2024.

She's done it again - Annie Cooke has shown that age is no boundary to excellence in sports by achieving a Silver medal in the 200m backstroke at the Masters World Swimming Championships, held in Doha, Qatar in February 2024. Her remarkable achievement is the culmination of years of unwavering dedication and rigorous training, much of which has taken place at the Wollondilly Community Leisure Centre. Clocking in at 4 minutes, 28.73 seconds, Annie's performance in the backstroke event exemplifies her tenacity and skill in the pool. Competing in the 80 to 84 years old category, Annie's Silver medal is a well-deserved result, up from her 7th place in the same race last year, showing some things just get better with age. Annie is an inspiration and a role model to many, and this result is a testament to her enduring commitment to excellence. We look forward to celebrating her future triumphs in the coming years.
