TRANENT OPEN GALA 14/09/2019

It’s a bit of a balancing act matching hard work with the secret of swimming hard without realizing it. This gala was the first for the club whereby all our swimmers were competing in events which were to be honest pretty tough and ‘out of their comfort zones.’

Whether it be a 200 Fly or a 400IM extending to 8OO free these are brutal swims particularly for the younger swimmers with less experience. I was a bit nervous about this one but they all swam fantastic and to mention all the good swims would range to over a page. Needless to say there were numerous club records posted, 16 in total including one or two records broken that I thought might remain on the website for another few years. There were many many highlights so I will pick a few out:-

Jasper’s club record on 200 Free and a great 200 fly – Emma’s club record 200 back -Elise great 200 back -Cambelle and Katy brilliant 200 Breast Thomas and Elliot very good 400IM as well as Alice on same event. Ellie and Darcy 800 and 200 free – just fantastic.

It goes without saying that the harder you train the more likely you will smash your personal bests. I was amazed how well we swam on events that are very tough and several coaches commented on the great swims and the attitude that we have in our club. Massively proud of all who swam and keep up the good work
