Team GB Success
The Los Angeles Special Olympics World Games were opened by President Obama and involved over 6,500 athletes from 165 countries. Team GB won a total of 68 gold, 69 silver and 42 bronze medals across all sports.
Our very own Emma Inglis was Assistant Coach for the aquatics team, and she was over the moon with the success of the team. Every swimmer who was supported achieved their personal best swim and won a medal. The competition was topped off with the team winning gold in the 4x25m freestyle relay - the GB swimming team returned with 4 gold, 3 silver and 3 bronze medals. Additionally, there was a 4th place and a 6th place ribbon too.
Could you help the club by volunteering to support our swimmers? The club will pay the training costs for you to become either a "Helper in the Water", or an ASA level 1 swimming teacher. If you're interested, please contact Lynda on 07948 208765 or Emma on 01253 751076
