The club had another fantastic competition last weekend at the Scottish Club Championships in Inverness. Almost the whole club was there to compete and contributed to the points total to regain the Mary Black Rosebowl Synchronised Swimming Club Championship trophy.
The competition started with solos, with Niamh, Cara and Mae competiting. They placed fifth, sixth and ninth respectively.
In the free team event clubs may enter one free team for each age group. This is the only event where a minimum grade is required. However, all age groups swim against each other. Edinburgh entered its 13-15 and Junior teams. The Junior team only had four members so automatically received a 2 point penalty (0.5 points per swimmer under 8). Both teams swam brilliantly, with the 13-15 team winning silver and the Junior team bronze.
Edinburgh A won gold with their last ever performance of their Back to the Future routine. Edinburgh B won bronze with their Wallace & Gromit routine. Edinburgh C came 5th, Edinburgh D 8th and Edinburgh E 10th.
The swimmers and volunteers were delighted to win the trophy for the second year running. What a brilliant end to the year. All the hard work put in this year by all the swimmers and volunteers, both on poolside and beyond, contributed to the win. Congratulations!
