Middlesbrough Xmas gala

posted 11 Dec 2017, 14:43 by Team Jorvik
Our Senior & Age Group Performance squads had a busy weekend with some amazing swimming at Middlesbrough in the last gala of the year on 9/10th December.  With a full event schedule, up to 400m events, it was a great chance for the swimmers to update old times as well as enter some favourite events.  Unfortunately the gala was so busy that the 400m IM and 200m Breaststroke were moved to Friday evening, meaning most of our entries had to be withdrawn for those events. 

PBs were too numerous to mention them all, but the star performance came from Amy, who produced some fantastic PBs all round, but most notably she achieved her first ever Yorkshire qualifying times with 3.5 and 10 second PBs in 50m and 100m Breaststroke respectively, and these might well turn out to be NER qualifying times too.  In addition, there were 6 other new Yorkshire qualifying times: Laura (50 Back, 50 Free, 100 Breast), Emma (50 Free), Callum (200 Free) and Aidan F (100 Free). 

A total of 18 medals were won: Joe S (3 gold, 1 silver, 2 bronze), Tom (silver), Zak (2 silver, 1 bronze), Callum (silver), Aidan R (silver), Joe C ( 1 gold, 3 silver, 1 bronze) and Amy (bronze).
