The boys 11/12 years old relay medley team also came in 3rd place - Adam Jones ,Eoin OÆConnor ,Ethan Scrutton and Jake Wissett


No medal this weekend, better luck next week.


There were lots of first time swims for younger swimmers so they donÆt achieve personal best times however some great results. Personal best times for the flowing swimmers:

There were some disqualifications through careless mistakes during turns and finishes. This is very disappointing after waiting for a race to start. If you have any doubts  on how to do anything in a race always speak to your coaches before the event and even poolside if needed. All individual swim times now updated.

Good luck to all those swimmers taking part in next Saturdays event
