Sprint to the end

Sun 15/Jan/2017

The last competition in the Club Championships is always the most fun, with almost the whole club showing up to compete. For the youngest swimmers, this was their first ever experience of competing and the 25 metre races were a great opportunity to practice their sprinting. For the older swimmers, the battle for sprints champion in each age group was fierce, with many swimmers putting in outstanding performances and achieving great times in order to get those all important points! Last of all was the Skins, in which the 6 fastest boys and girls in the 100m Individual Medley race compete in an elimination style event where the stroke is randomly selected for each round. The Skins is a thrilling event to watch (and exhausting to compete in!), and the boys swimmers coming onto poolside in their onesies certainly made it that bit more entertaining! Congratulations goes to the winners Clio Bacon and Ben Strover, who fought off the competition in a very close final round. Thank you to all the parents and swimmers for being such great supporters of those racing, even if the cheering was slightly deafening at some points! Thank you also to the officials, coaches, marshals and helpers who as always allowed the competition to run smoothly. We hope to see all of you at presentation evening on the 25th February to receive your awards for Club Championships!

Jumping for Gold

Sun 15/Jan/2017

Gold squad enjoyed a day at Jump Giants, while wearing their fantastic new Ojay’s Polo tops thanks to Hannah Strover and Lucia Tammaro winning the Jack Petchey award. The squad (although sadly missing a few who were competing at the Kent Schools gala) jumped, bounced, laughed and tumbled for an hour. The only problem was the fact our purple club colour along with the Jump Giants socks, were an exact match to the trampoline colour scheme, and that made it very hard to see them in the foam pit! A fun team building day. (We have a short video which will be up soon.)
