Earlier this week in the Manitoba Legislature Flin Flon MLA Tom Lindsey recognized the Flin Flon Aqua Doves. Lindsey told members they are the oldest and only synchronized swimming team in all of northern Manitoba. He explained they were established not long after the community swimming pool was built in 1975 and 35 years on they continue to carry on the strong tradition of synchronized swimming in northern Manitoba. He said every Saturday morning at 8 sharp you’ll find the Aqua Doves gathered on the pool deck for the practice and preparing their routines. The program welcomes swimmers of all ages and abilities to promote fitness and fun. Lindsey noted recently they represented Flin Flon in the Crocus Challenge in Winnipeg with great success. Their swimmers competed in both the recreational and competitive streams and several swimmers went on to compete in the Canadian prairie synchronized swimming championship held in Winnipeg this past weekend and did Flin Flon proud.
Lindsey adds he would like to recognize all the swimmers and coaching team of the Flin Flon Aqua Doves for their dedication and commitment to the sport.
