Fast 5 Meet Report

Mon 4 July 2016 at 9:07am

-The final regional level competition of the year was held this Sunday at the GL1 leisure centre in Gloucester. The meet consisted of  five individual races, all four 50m events and the 100 IM. With all regional qualifiers invited to compete, it promised a high level of competition.

There was a big emphasis on the process of racing within this meet and not on the final outcome, times came secondary to swimming smart. With lots of emphasis put on turn speed and under water phases all swimmers managed to achieve a goal on every swim.

Soundwell swimmers performed at an exceptional level yet again and took home two gold medals for Heather Witcombe 14yrs & Sophia Sotreiou 11/12yrs, two silver medals for Jasmine Stone 15yrs & Sam Taylor 11/12yrs and finally a Bronze medal for Jake Turner 11/12yrs.

A special mention should go out to those who have achieved their first regional medal, as this is a major achievement at a high level of competition and shows their ability over all stoke disciplines.

With the level of performance from all our swimmers within this meet, I as a coach feel very proud for the hard work and dedication that our swimmers put into every session, and long may it continue.
