We held a gala!

We were proud to be among the first clubs to hold a Level 3 meet after Covid restrictions were lifted - our "annual" Jorvik Viking Sprints was held a month later than usual, on 24th July 2021 at John Charles Centre, Leeds.  There were still restrictions in place, including no spectators being allowed, and the timing system wasn't working properly, but that didn't dampen the swimmers' enthusiasm and everybody's delight and relief at being able to attend a gala again after 16 months.  For many swimmers this was their first gala.

Team Jorvik swimmers put in magnificent performances all round, with nearly all swims being PBs, a handful of new Yorkshire QTs being achieved and lots of medals won.  The coaches were very proud - well done everyone!
