Seaside Special July 2018

posted 15 Jul 2018, 01:41 by Team Jorvik
On a lovely summer's day in Bridlington, it seemed a shame for us to be sweltering inside the leisure complex.  However, it was well worth it for the fantastic swimming once again produced by our younger members - and the view out to sea from the spectators' gallery was the best you will ever find at a swimming gala!  And, as Charlotte found out later, the sea was actually pretty cold - the pool was much better for swimming in!

Pretty much everyone went home with a haul of medals and there were some awesome PBs.  It was great to see many huge improvements in the 100m events (mostly from our gala in March, only 4 months ago) - notably Ellie going 15 seconds faster in 100m Fly and 12 seconds in 100m Free, Freddie with 10 second PBs in 100m Free and 100m Back, and Emma knocking 17 seconds off her 200m IM time. And Aiden swam an incredible 4 seconds and 6 seconds faster in 50m Back and Free than he had done just a month ago at our Viking Sprints gala - great stuff!  There were also some new qualifying times for the Yorkshire Winter Competition: Freddie 50 Fly, Ellie 100 Back, Jess 50 Free and 50 Back.  Well done everyone :)
