Firstly thanks to all who helped make our Winter Championships such a huge success – the poolside team, officials, catering team, raffle and program sellers, swimmers and those who created the atmosphere poolside whilst spectating. Most pleasing of all was the behaviour and swimming prowess shown by the swimmers, especially those who were attending a gala for the first time. It is always great to see so many swimmers in the 8 and under races, they are our next generation of club swimmers and many of our current club members commented on how good some of them were in the water. Hope you all enjoyed it as much as we enjoyed having you poolside.
There were 5 club records broken at the gala, 4 of which had stood for 14 years or more. one of these was the last record held by our old head coach Brian Dalgleish when he himself was a swimmer with the club, we are certain that there will be nobody more pleased than Brian to see his record broken. Remarkably there were 3 races in which multiple swimmers broke the club record, very well done swimmers and keep up the good work in training. All your hard work is paying off.
All the results are now available in the members section.
Finally a word to those swimmers who couldn’t make it due to ill health, we had a number of late call offs due to illness or injury. You were all missed, and we can’t wait to see you back at training once you are fit and healthy again.
