Fireworks Gala

- Admin

Congratulations to all 45 swimmers who participated in the EDSC and DDSC Fireworks gala on the 5th and 6th of November at Crook Log. We continue to go from strength to strength with an incredible number of personal bests yet again and half of our swimmers taking home a top 3 medal. It is wonderful to see swimmers improve gala after gala which goes to show the coaches hard work paying off across the squads. Of the 211 events we participated in, 42% resulted in a PB and an incredible 54 (26%) in a top 3 medal position. That's despite the fact that a lot of our swimmers couldn’t make the gala having qualified for the Winter Regional Championships held on the same weekend. That didn’t stop Daisy, Grace, Lauren and Tania attending both galas, with Tania swimming 200m Breaststroke at Regionals on Sunday morning and coming back in the afternoon to take the Gold in the 100m Breaststroke.

There were some really great swims across the board but a massive congratulations go to Alice, Andrew, Ellie, George, Lucas, Nola, Max and Tania on achieving new or improved County consideration times. Of course, the only prizes anyone wanted to win were the little ducks for winning the heats…and we had lots of those too!

A brilliant supportive role by Team Managers Caroline, Emma, Jo, Lindsay, Mark and Shereen

…and the gala would have taken place without our wonderful qualified officials offering the most support of any club as per usual - Andre, Carl, Darren, Eoin, Mark and Zahida.
