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!

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.
