St Ives Swimmers participated at the Richard O'Leary Swimming Meet at Whittlesey on Sunday 6th October.   They performed superbly to win a plethora of medals( 43 Total: Gold: 18, Silver: 16 Bronze: 9 ) and achieve a host of lifetime best times.

Particularly pertinent as Cambridgeshire County Swimming changed the County A qualifying times 3 months prior the Championships beginning in January 2020, so with a much reduced window to now achieve the new faster times the swimmers had to step up to the mark quickly, and this many did on their first outing since the revised times were released last week.

17 swimmers won at least one medal, and also many top 6 placings and great swims from all swimmers.  Fantastic grit and determination by all the swimmers involved providing a riveting weekend of swimming.
