BLAZING heat on Saturday didn't worry contestants at Gayndah Swimming Carnival.

More than 180 children swam in 90 events.

The 12-year-old Robertson won gold in 50m backstroke, as well as silver in 50m freestyle and bronze in the 50m butterfly.

Evans won gold in the 10 years' 50m backstroke, silver in 50m breaststroke, freestyle and butterfly, and bronze in the 200m individual medley.

Biggenden swimmer Teagen Bechly, 14, won the 50m backstroke and her brother Blake, 10, finished second in 50m backstroke.

Gayndah girl Annika Darlington, 14, won silver in the 50m backstroke, and bronze in 50m butterfly, breaststroke and freestyle.

Eidsvold swimmer Alecia Rigg, 12, finished third in 50m backstroke and Gayndah's Grace Robertson won bronze in the 50m butterfly for the 11 years' age group.

Munduberra Swimming Club set a high standard for future competition with 90% of the swimmers achieving personal best times.

The annual event drew swimming clubs from Biggenden, Mundubbera, Eidsvold, Monto, Gympie, Nanango, Kingaroy, Wondai, Murgon, Isis, Mary River, Bundaberg and Fraser Coast.

The Lions Club kept everyone well fed with breakfast and lunch barbecues.
