Well done to our swimmers who took part at the very busy 3-day Dolphin Open last weekend in Mayfield. Swimming over the weekend were Ryan Ates, Eabha Burke, Zach Daniels Howard, Amy Hawe, Tadhg O’Brien, Luke O’Shea and Luca Salvatori.
Ryan swam the 100 breast where he had a great PB and won silver, and he went on to PB in his 200 IM. Eabha had a total of 4 events – 100 fly, and then three great PBs in the 200 IM, 100 free and 200 free. Zach was swimming the 100 breast and the 100 fly, where he had PBs in both.
Amy was taking on the 800 free, an event that is all about pacing, which she did in style knocking nearly 15 seconds off her previous time – well done Amy. Tadhg was swimming 3 events at the gala, 100 breast, 100 back and 100 free and was great to see him get a great PB in his breaststroke.
Luke had two very good swims with his 100 back and 100 free. Luca had a busy weekend taking on 6 events – a very good PB in his 100 breast saw him come away with a bronze medal, with another bronze and another PB in the 200 IM.
Luca also had a very impressive PB in his 100 back followed by two good swims in the 100 free and 100 IM and finishing off with a PB in the 200 free.
Thanks to Dolphin SC for a great weekend! Thanks to the parents who acted as our team managers over the weekend and to coach Joann who was on hand with advice for our swimmers.
