Seahorse Swimming Club, based at Crewe's Lifestyle Centre, came away as overall winners of a friendly gala hosted by Sailfin Swimming Club at Sale Leisure Centre, Manchester. Thirty five swimmers with learning and physical disabilities from the North West took part in individual and relay races, as they prepared for next month’s Halliwick regional gala.
“There was lots of enthusiasm and determination shown by many of the swimmers and it was good to see a few new faces taking part, including Seahorse’s Matt Roberts, who came away with a gold meal on his gala debut. The competition gave the swimmers a chance to work on their fitness and as a team. It also gave new swimmers a taste of competition and an opportunity to swim in a different environment and follow the gala rules.” – Gareth Roberts, (Chief Instructor).
Seahorse representatives were: Zack Beeston, Carson Bruce, Ethan Carroll, Shea Dutton, Paul Edwards, Jonathan Harrison, Neil Jones, Amelia Pirzadeh, Matt Roberts, Sean Savage and Erin Yoxall.
They bagged a total of 20 medals - 14 gold, 2 silver and 4 bronze.
