We took a small team of swimmers to the Winsford Christmas Development Gala on 17th December. It was a very long day but all the swimmers and spectators had a very good time.
As in the previous gala I was very proud of our swimmers for their team work and how they supported each other. What made the gala especially magical was that every single swimmer had gained a medal by half time and the second half was even more productive. By the end of the day our swimmers could not stand upright for all the medals round their necks!
There were some stonking PBs also gained on the day and a few Cheshire times were also achieved.
Medals gained – 11 gold; 4 silver; 3 bronze and 5 pennants.
PBs – Eddie 100m freestyle, 100m butterfly and 200IM. Eva 50m freestyle, 50m breaststroke, 100m breaststroke and 100m IM. Megan 100m breaststroke, 50m butterfly, 50 backstroke and 100m IM. Sammy 100m backstroke and 100m butterfly. Sophie 100m breaststroke, 100m butterfly, 100m backstroke and 200m IM.
Next gala – Manchester and Districts in March 2017. Please see Sarah Cook on poolside for details.
