Thank you to all Saracens swimmers who competed in the Celebration Gala at Grand
Central and a big thank you to parents for attending and for those who helped on poolside
on the day. Sadly we could not enter a full team as we were lacking swimmers in the boys
10 and under and boys 11/12 age groups but even so we still came third narrowly missing
out on 2nd place by only a few points.
This is always a good meet, the energy from both the spectators and the swimmers making
it an annual event to remember. It gives the junior swimmers a chance to swim alongside
the senior swimmers including international swimmers, Commonwealth Games medal
winners and Paralympians.
A special mention to one 10 and under boy who “swam up” an age group; he ended up
doing races in both the 10 and under and the 11/12 age group to ensure we could gain
junior boys points – you know who you are! He was still smiling at the end but I bet he slept
well that night…
