Clevedon Swimming Club took part in the third round of the National Arena series competing against Backwell, Barnstaple, Carn Brea, Devonport Royal, Poole and Cirencester.
After a very exciting start, with many team and individual wins we found ourselves in first place. Despite Clevedon swimming their hearts out we found ourselves being knocked off the top spot and eventually after a gallant battle, involving much cheering, we finished in third place.
I would like to thank all the swimmers, some of whom it was their first Arena gala, for their amazing team spirit, their loud voices and courageous swims. The coaches for their time, commitment and encouragement. The wonderful helpers that make the galas run so smoothly by ensuring all the swimmers get to the blocks on time.
