On 7th July, Dolphin team took part in the Combo Cup. They made the journey up to the Olympic Park, Stratford, to show off
their spectacular Power Rangers routine.
Carys, Katie, Josie, Lucia, Nicola,
and Celia trained exceptionally hard in the lead up to the competition - occasionally even doing an extra session here and there. The swimmers presented the routine
exceptionally well and made their coach, Katie very proud.
Thank you to the parents for ferrying the team to the sessions, and supporting them at the event. Thank you to Katie for your
drive and amazing choreography which got them to the competition, and thank you to Laura Lindley for judging on the day.
Well done everyone!
On Saturday 16th June, the club held an internal club competition for those swimmers who, unfortunately, couldn't compete in the London Competition last Saturday. Twenty one
swimmers registered for the event.
The swimmers were divided into 3 age categories (Novice; Grade 0 (8-12yrs); and Grade 0 (13-18yrs)) and were required to perform 3 different figures at 3 judging panels around the pool.
So, in third place, and awarded the BRONZE medal for the Novice group, was Florrie Hunt. Second place with SILVER was Amelia Moody and in first place with the GOLD medal was Greta Pousti.
Within the Grade 0 (8-12yrs) category, in third place, and awarded a BRONZE medal was Lily-Mae Kennedy. Second place, awarded SILVER, was Louisa Loizou and first, awarded the GOLD medal, was Tess Lea Gladys Drewett.
Finally the Grade 0 (13-18yrs) age category. In third place with the BRONZE medal was Priya Watkinson, second place with the SILVER
medal was Manon Zahri and in first place with the GOLD medal Olivia
Well done to all swimmers who competed, especially given it was their first experience of a synchro figure competition. Your coaches are extremely proud of you.
Thank you to all the committee members, masters swimmers, and junior swimmers who helped make the day possible by judging, scoring and marshalling.
Thank you to Louise, whose quick thinking led to the day being organised after the figures were removed from the London Competition.
A special thank you to Collette Crow, without whom the competition couldn’t have happened and who organised the whole event.
Well done swimmers!
