Sunday afternoon is for teams and Edinburgh Synchro was the first Scottish team in a long time (ever?) to be able to enter 12&under and 13,14,15 competitive teams. Our girls swam wonderfully and both teams were rewarded with a National gold medal for their efforts.

Edinburgh had two recreational combination teams in the Open event and Edinburgh A won the bronze medal, with 0.8 points between the top three teams.

Well done to everyone and thank you to those who came along to support the team.

An additional bonus was that Stephen Milne the olympic swimmer came along to watch on Sunday, and lots of the team were able to meet him.
