We came, we saw, we rocked! Over 30 swimmers from across 4 squads competed to the best of their ability at this popular gala, bringing home a grand total of 23 medals; over 40 other top 10 places were achieved and an astounding 90+ pbs were smashed! The improvement of the swimmers was plain for all to see, and reflective of the time and commitment put in by swimmers, coaches and parents alike. Coach Adrian provided top racing tips and helpful feed-back. Thank-you to Adrian and the team-managers.
