Thirteen Team Jorvik swimmers took part in the Rotherham Metro A/B Short Course Meet at Ponds Forge on 14/15 July 2018. This gala marked the end of the season and the apex of our training year. Once again our swimmers did us proud. Despite only being a small group we won a total of 43 medals.

The hard work in training over the season obviously paid off as there were lots of PBs with many of our swimmers almost completing a full set. Special mention must go to Jake and Callum who both broke the one minute barrier on the 100 free, both achieving a personal best of 59.49!

There were also lots of new qualifying times for the Yorkshire Championships and the North East Regional Championships over course of the weekend:
Aidan R (New Yorkshire Time: 200 IM, New NER Times: 100 Breast, 200 Breast) 
Amy (New Yorkshire Time: 100 free, New NER Time: 50 Breast)
Callum (New NER Times: 200 free, 100 Breast, 200 Breast)
Cormac (New Yorkshire Times: 50 Breast, 100 Breast)
Eleanor (New NER times: 400 free, 100 fly)
Emma P.D (New Yorkshire Time: 200 IM)
Jake (New NER Time: 100 Back)
Joan (New Yorkshire Time: 200 IM, New NER Time: 100 Back, 100 Free, 200 Back)
Laura (New Yorkshire Time: 200 IM)
Meredith (New NER Time: 200 IM)

All in all, it was a fantastic end to a superb 2017/18 season at Team Jorvik. All our swimmers have worked really hard and always given their best which has led to some super fast swimming. I think David summed it up at the end of the gala: “It’s been a great year – and next year we’re going to go even faster!”  We can’t wait David – watch this space!
