Swimming Gala at The Elms
First swim fixture of the season and we were at the Elms. Lots of excitement as this was the first gala for some of our swimmers. We had children swimming up two age groups to fill in for sickness but they took it all in their stride.
Excitement from the off with the gala starting with Medley Relays. The amount of noise from cheering was immense, with every team willing their swimmers on.
We showed how much work we had been putting into our starts which gave us an advantage on most of the races. Some work needed on some of the strokes but most held well and gave excellent swims.
There were some extremely close races which got everyone off their seats!
Excellent swimming from all three teams and it was so nice to see the children being congratulatory to each other.
A good win to start the season but we must not rest on our laurels, another gala in November awaits!
Well done everyone!
