What a great gala this was, I bet Andrea was watching from afar and enjoying the action as her son donned his pink cap with his friends.
Andrea was a lovely women who would help anyone with out hesitation. She loved swimming and that love was matched only by that of her love for her beloved son Christian and her devoted husband Steve. Well Andrea I hoped you enjoyed the gala as much as we did, you will be sorely missed.
The gala was a swimming success with many people achieving personal bests, and with good swims all round it is hard to pick my favourite highlights of the weekends events. If I had to chose it would probably be the younger end of the pack with both Piper Stevens (8) and Kayden Healy (9) posting some great times and look like future champions in the making.
Of course both Emily Barclay and Anna Doughty showed the girls the way and that they are a force to be reckoned with, all the hard work in training shows girls.
I can't do a report with out mentioning the pink hat brigade of Christian, James, Elliot and Will, some great racing from all of you especially Christian your mum would've been so proud.
Also well done to the youngsters of the Mini Marlins who competed in the 25m events at the beginning of the gala, please see the results sheets below for the finishing order.
And finally that brings me to the Parents race which was great fun but embarrassing for some :) - Andy H, I didn't think they made Speedo's that small LMAO. And well the competition between Andy Walton and Mike Chadwick was fierce and very close I for one will be looking forward to a rematch :)
Well done everyone, have a look at the results attached below.
